New Online Bible Study from Methodist Church
The Methodist Church has launched a new online Bible Study to help people make time for their spiritual development as daily life gets more and more hectic.
The A Word in Time Bible Study can be accessed daily by logging on to www.methodist.org.uk/bible wherever they are in the world.
Launching Sunday September 2 as part of the new-look Methodist website, A Word in Time will feature a daily Bible reading, background on the text, reflections and questions to ponder from that week's contributor.
It follows the readings in the Methodist Prayer Handbook, All things in Christ, bringing the 40,000 readers of the handbook together with online disciples in their search for daily spirituality.
Sundays will be extra special, the Methodist Church said, with a blog attached to the commentary, enabling users to post their own comments and thoughts on the featured passage.
Alison Pollard, Web Writer, says; "The Bible is a central part of our faith, but with our hectic 21st century lifestyles, it's often easy to neglect this essential part of our Christianity.
"With this exciting new online feature, we are trying to encourage the reader to apply the Bible to their own life and the social and political context in which they live."
Each week, a different writer will offer their thoughts and reflections on a different passage of the Bible, with fifty-two contributors in total, from a wide range of social and academic backgrounds.
