Scripture reading and discussion in community with Plymouth friends, from the comfort of your home? YES! I’m delighted to participate in on-line Bible study Jennifer Castle introduced this fall via Zoom, a free application you can download to your smart phone or computer. I felt hesitant to try it because I’m not very “techie,” or experienced with Bible study. I discovered Zoom “user friendly.”
Every Wednesday night at 7:30 pm, Jennifer waits for us to join her on line to discuss scripture for the upcoming Sunday. If you don’t have time to read the passages ahead of time or have a Bible handy, no problem! She puts passages on the screen and we read it aloud together. Jennifer provides background information and invites us to explore deeper meanings together. Seeing the faces of others and sharing our thoughts provides me a midweek boost of community and a sense of God’s presence. You don’t have to commit to tuning in every week, although the more I experience the benefits, the more I look forward to that special half hour Wednesday nights.
I'm grateful to Jennifer for offering another way to keep us connected to each other and to God. I encourage you to try it! – Carol MooneySubscribe
