How does God’s Word speak to you?


Just Scripture Virtual Discussion: 

SATURDAY, June 13, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. 

We’ll read and listen to how God speaks to each of us through Scripture. We listen to what others have heard and share from a perspective of Franciscan values. No previous study of Scripture is required.

To participate you are required to register.  Click here to register. The session and registration is FREE.  You will be asked for your name, email and (best) phone number.  After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. 

There is a 25 person limit for this session. If you try register for the discussion after we have reached meeting capacity you will be placed on a waiting list in case of cancellations, or you will be contacted by Kathleen Garast who will set up another gathering (possibly on that Sunday or another date). There is also a 25 person limit for any additional session.  

In Just Scripture, we live Scripture, we pray with Scripture and we invite God to speak to us about biblical issues of justice, mercy and compassion that impact our world today.
