One promising way to invite folks in your organization or congregation to become more deeply engaged with the Bible is to provide opportunities for members of your congregation or organization to share with others some of the ways the Bible has been important to them or touched their lives through the struggles or joys or demands of life. Take time at meetings or in church services for folks to pause to Dwell in the Word either through listening to one person’s story or testimony or through a group exploring a text together.
You might read or listen to some of the Dwelling in the Word moments from the 2007 Churchwide Assembly or the Book of Faith consultation. These can serve as examples of what might be done in your own context, though each individual’s story will be unique. If you have Dwelling in the Word moments from your own setting that you might wish to share with the broader church, please send them to BookofFaith@elca.org
