Fr. Martin recommends this brief, accessible and instructive introduction to reading scripture as a helpful exercise for Advent. Just click on the link at the bottom of this page.

We are living in divisive, fearful, and complex times where honing abilities to live peaceful, wholehearted, and forgiving lives is increasingly difficult. Perhaps more than any other resource, the Bible has proven to be the inspiration behind living such lives.

In this course, students will learn how to get more out of the Bible through Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby’s inspiring words and a plethora of Bible resources to help make Bible reading more insightful, practical, and transformative.

The Archbishop offers 3 lectures to help us. Stephen Lyon, leader of a project called The Bible in the Life of the Church offers a fourth. Their titles are:

  • Approaching Scripture
  • Scripture in Worship
  • Studying Scripture
  • Encountering Scripture

This course is ideal for people who are new to the Bible, as well as those who know the Bible well but are looking for inspiration and resources.
