Dwelling in the Word

Bibles in pewsListening to scripture, each other and God.

Dwelling in the Word isn't about sharing information or seeking scholarly answers - or even the right answers - to the issues raised in the text.

It is far from magical or formulaic; it won’t solve all the problems or answer all the questions, difficulties and issues you have to address. But over time, this discipline forms a community of the Holy Spirit, where the Spirit is as welcome and expected as anyone else there.

In our current season (September 2022 onwards), we're dwelling on John 1.1-18.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God...
