Weekly Lectionary Gatherings for Clergy
Tuesdays at 12 Noon / Greenfield Memorial UMC / Beginning 22 November 2020
Rob Odum and Tom Garnhart invite colleagues to join them for weekly gatherings. The intent is to build collegial relationships and to probe the lectionary for the following Sunday. Bring a Bible and a bag lunch if you wish.
We will begin with informal conversations and end with prayer. Lessons will be read out loud. Conversations about what we've heard will follow.
Why listen to the word? Virtually all of scripture was intended to be heard by the ear rather than seen by the eye. Even letter writer Paul expected Corinthian letters to be heard when read to the congregation by a literate member. Focusing on written texts without having heard them can distract us from their main point.
Contact Rob at <email@example.com> or Tom at <firstname.lastname@example.org> for further information. Let Rob know if you plan to attend.
