Give Me a Word

A Weekly Bible Study and Video Reflection

With Bishop Russell Kendrick

Early each week during this time apart, I will post Bible verses focused on a particular word or phrase.  I invite you to read, mark, and inwardly digest the daily selections.  On Thursday [hopefully] a brief video will be available to frame the context of the passages and discuss some key points about the particular verses and how they relate to the weekly theme.  This is new territory for all of us, so I thank you for your patience and understanding as we journey together.  I know some folks like to “read ahead” but I am trying to pay attention to the Holy Spirit and adjust as the path ahead of us unfolds.  So I am only planning for the next three weeks.

As always, Bible study is best done with others. Even though we may not be able to meet in-person, you can still gather by video.  This can be made available via Zoom or other platforms.  If you would like to know how contact Jenn Johnson at jenn@diocgc.org.
