Dwelling In The Word

"Dwelling in the Word" is one of the six spiritual practices we are using to engage with God, one another and the world through our Partnership in Missional Church program.  “Dwelling in the Word” means regularly setting aside time to read the Bible (to be in the Word).  This practice can be utilized as an individual, with a partner or with a group.  It is simply the reading of a page or set of passages in the Bible, reflecting on them and then listening to what God may be telling us (or where God may be leading us) through them.  The objective of the practice is to dwell in the Word until the Word dwells in us – until our understanding of the Word begins to effectively shape our imagination, intentions, and actions in keeping with God’s will.

Below are a set of instructions that can be used if you are Dwelling in the Word with a group:
