Encourage One Another:

Today's scripture study brings us to the Mass readings for the day. We've linked to the Lectionary instead of the NRSV Bible. In the United States, the Lectionary uses the NABRE version of the Bible. We've linked to that version today, and you can compare the language to the NRSV-CE in your book. The study of translations is fascinating!

Mary Lenaburg recently offered some insight into the process of Lectio Divina for our Rooted in Hope Facebook group. You can find that video here. If you're not yet a member of the group, we'd love to have you join us there. You'll also find support at our Instagram group. 

Sundays are special in the study books. You'll find some weekly planning sheets on Sundays as well as the daily sheets. These pages are designed to help you see the big picture for the week.  The lefthand page holds a place for you to sketch in appointments and events happening in your world. On the right, there is space to record the memory verse from yesterday so that you can begin to memorize it. We've also left some room for the to-dos for the week. What gifts need some attention and what kind of party prep might need addressing? Be sure to keep a list of prayer intentions as well. These pages are meant to be as open-ended as possible so that you can use them as you like. 

How's it going? How can we help? Let us know!
