Living Word Series


Two termly series helping us discover together how God speaks to us through different books of the Bible.

Autumn Term

Our favourite psalms: a shared journey

The plan for the autumn is to spend each of the four sessions before Christmas sharing our favourite psalms.

If you would like to be involved, please enrol as usual with the office at St. Bede’s, and send for Sr. Patricia a list of six psalms that you especially like, before the end of September. There is bound to be some duplication, but she will do her best to create a programme, which will be emailed to all participants before the series begins, and will name the person responsible for introducing and reading each psalm on the date indicated. That person will read the psalm to the group and say what it means to him/her – then others will make their own comments. Sr Patricia will hope to give additional input as seems appropriate each time.

Spring Term

St John: the Gospel of the Word made Flesh

Compared with the other three gospels, the fourth gospel stands on its own. Written later than the Synoptics, it is more reflective: there are still ‘signs and wonders’, but more dialogue, more invitation to look beyond events and begin to see where they are leading us.

  • Chs. 1-5. The Word comes into the world
  • Chs. 6-11 Many of his disciples went away…. Opposition grows.
  • Chs. 12 – 16 Now the hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.
  • Chs. 17 – 21 My Lord and my God….. He is risen indeed!

Led by Sr Patricia CJ, a member of the York CJ community with a particular specialism in scripture studies.
