Scripture Readings

For this study, we have invited members of four different churches from around the diocese to read the scriptures for us. This week, the readers are from Grace Church, San Antonio. They include Mike Monroe reading the Isaiah passage, Jamie George reading the Mark passage, and Erin DeHart reading the 2 Peter passage.

This entire study is presented in both written and audio format. We invite you to set aside 15 minutes each day to engage with the Word of God, however seems best to you.

This week’s study was written by the Rev. Dr. John Lewis. For the entire week’s study in pdf format, week two. Or engage it one day at a time with the links below.
