Spiritual Resources

Below are links to a variety of resources for Christian Spirituality. These will be added to over time.

Engaging with the Bible

Holy Reading to Renew the Soul – Traditionally called Lectio Divina, this is a reflective, prayerful way of hearing God’s word through the Scriptures. The focus is on hearing God’s specific word to our present situation more than on learning the intellectual meaning of the text.

Holy Reading Passages for Lent – A series of short passages which speak to the focus of the Lenten season.Make time this Lent to discern what God is calling you to do and become in this time of reflection and renewal.

Choosing a Bible – A short guide on how to choose a Bible Translation

Weekly Bible Study – Our Bible Study group meets at the church regularly, but if you would like to follow along from home Rev. John posts the weekly reflection questions on his blog.

Prayer

Praying with the Psalms – The Psalms have always held a central place in the prayer life of God’s people. They are the prayers of Israel and the prayers of Jesus, and they can teach us to pray today.

Praying with the Lord’s Prayer – Jesus gave us the Lord’s Prayer as a model for how we should pray, and this resource provides some practical guidance as to how we can use it. For parents who want to help their children learn how to pray there is also a simplified version: The Lord’s Prayer for Children.
