In August 2017, seven people from around the Episcopal Diocese of Newark agreed to be videorecorded as they practiced Dwelling in the Word using Luke 10:1-12, and that session has been distilled into this brief video. Watch and learn about this simple, ancient practice of listening deeply to God and one another.
One of the key components of our journey is learning together how to discern what God is saying to us by collectively living in Scripture. Dwelling in the Word creates space for the Spirit to open up our imagination and helps us to form community based in scripture. As we practice dwelling in scripture, in the stories of our faith ancestors, we are growing in confidence that God is active among us and we, as the people of God, are the sources of discerning what God wants us to do among us.
