Beginning on Sunday, November 3, we will offer a weekly discussion group on the lessons appointed for the Sunday worship service. Commonly known as a “pericope study” pastors will meet to share observations and insights on the scripture readings as they prepare for preaching. We’ll use our discussion time for Pastor Zook to bring scholars analysis of the readings and focusing questions for our discussion. You can then compare what we’ve discussed with the way the sermon develops one or more of these directions—or misses the point entirely (you decide). This study will continue through the month of November. Please join us for this time of study and reflection.
