Wednesdays during Lent, 7-8 PM beginning February 21st
Peace Coffee, 3262 Minnehaha Ave in Longfellow
As we continue to “Live the Questions” in the season of Lent, consider this Lenten practice:
Wednesday evenings from 7-8 PM you’ll find me sitting at Peace Coffee with the scripture for the following week. (Except March 7th).
One of the best ways to study the scripture is to ask it a lot of questions, so I’m calling this “Frequently Asked Questions” bible study. The main goal will be to ask the text as many questions as we can, and see what that might open up for us.
Here are some examples of questions we might ask:
Who is in this story?
Who is this story written for?
Who is this story written about?
Who wrote this story?
What did they want their audience to think when they read this story?
What should we think instead?
What happened before this story?
Why did he say THAT?
What does this mean?
In what tone of voice do you think he said that?
What did the setting look like?
Who else might have been there?
What was that silent character thinking?
Why don’t the women have names?And lots more…you get to ask. I don’t guarantee answers, but Jesus didn’t either. Often he just asked more questions.
Then come on Sunday and see how these questions get woven into the fabric of the message.
