Bible Study via Zoom
Wednesday, 7-8 a.m.
St. John’s Bible Study group meets weekly during the academic year. The format is a wide-open seminar with gentle moderation by our friend and convener Don Robinson. We generally study one book at a time, alternating between the Old and New Testaments. Occasionally we select a relevant non-Biblical text. We differ, agree, and sometimes bond in our bewilderment, all in a spirit of frankness, forgiveness, and fellowship. All people of the parish and friends from beyond are welcome.
Wednesday Morning Lectio Divina
Wednesday, 11 a.m. via Zoom
This small group meets before the Wednesday Noontime service to meditate on the gospel reading appointed for the following Sunday.
