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 St. Francis by the Lake, Canyon Lake. They include Baker Duncan reading the Isaiah passage, Julie Chalk reading the 1 Thessalonians passage, and Kyong Han Stackhouse reading the John 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. Jane Patterson. For the entire week’s study in pdf format, Week Three. Or engage it one day at a time with the links below.
