We are now reading scripture texts from Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians. If you would like to know the precise scripture reference for the coming session, or would like to join the online group, please contact Pastor Martin. (prmartinmalina@gmail.com).

In the hour we are together we follow the practice of lectio divina (a prayerful, reflective reading of the scripture), hearing the text three times and asking each time a different question of the text and of ourselves:

  1. What word or phrase or image first speaks to you?
  2. What is God/Jesus/the Word saying to you? What is the important meaning you discover in this text?
  3. What is God/Jesus/the Word calling you to do?
