Making Time for Scripture Study in Your Busy Life
Daily Personal Study
Spend about 20 minutes a day prayerfully reading and reflecting on a section of Scripture. Questions in the Study Guide direct the reflection, while the commentary provides solid Catholic scholarship that leads to deeper understanding.
Weekly Small-Group Sharing
Gather weekly in groups of eight to twelve to pray and to share your responses to the study questions. Trained small-group facilitators encourage the sharing of personal thoughts and experiences in an atmosphere of openness and trust.
Listen to a brief lecture that follows the small-group discussion. The lectures develop and clarify the themes of the lesson and may be delivered by local speakers or by using audio- or video-taped resources.
Prayer is the most essential of the elements. In addition to daily personal prayer, learn to use Conversational Prayer, a simple, effective method of prayer used in the small group. A source of unity, support, and guidance, prayer is the key to the success of your Bible study.
