BookBinders Has Announced Our Next Read!
Posted: Sunday, January 2, 2022
BookBinders… …starting January 16th, 2022 In the Gospel of John Jesus directs us, "Abide in me, as I abide in you". 'Abide, Keeping Vigil in the Word of God' is an invitation to make the Word of God your home through the practice of lectio divina. Macrina Wiederkehr, OSB, encourages you to turn the words of Scripture over in your heart as a plough turns over the soil to welcome the seed. In these scriptural meditations, the piercing reflective questions and personal prayers lead the reader into a deeper relationship with the Divine. Aware that drawing near to the Word of God requires a special kind of presence, the author invites you to breathe in the Word, wait before the Word, walk through the pages of Scripture as a pilgrim, and, finally, abide in an intimate and transforming communion with God. The format of the book lends itself not only to daily personal prayer and reflection, but to group faith sharing as well. Join together, won’t you? Sundays during Sunday School hour in the library.
