Reflections: Preparing for the Growing Season 
 
 
 
 
 
As the church, we are in the season of Lent, a time of preparation. In terms of the calendar, we are entering another time of preparation: spring, the time of preparing for the growing season to follow. I am not a gardener, but I have the good fortune to know some seasoned pros at horticulture. During winter, they look through seed catalogs to read about cultivating plants that grow well in particular areas, to plan this year’s garden lay out, all to prepare for the next stage: preparing the soil for planting. In terms of Bible study, this metaphor of preparing for the growing season involves utilizing tools that will give adults the best foundation from which to grow in understanding. Because The Kerygma Program is committed to helping adults understand the Bible whole, that is, understanding individual books within the entire canon, we provide resources to “prepare the soil” for planting. Consider offering adults in your church learning opportunities that provide a good foundation for further study of biblical books and themes.

How do I make sense of the Bible? How can I better understand what it says? Listening to Scripture answers these questions by demonstrating the tools that biblical scholars use to understand what the Bible meant so that we can understand what it means. This resource contains multiple examples of Biblical texts to demonstrate how individuals as well as communities can better understand the Bible as the living word of God for our lives now.

God’s people had questions about their Creator which are mirrored in the Scriptures. They wondered: What is God’s true nature? Can we trust God to be loving, fair, and just? How can we know the unknowable God?

At the heart of the Bible's story is a relationship between God and people, sparked by God's initiative, sustained by God's promise, and sealed in covenant terms. Track the narrative as God holds steady while the people struggle to keep faith and fulfill their mission in God's world.

A great introduction to answer an important question:  who is Jesus? Mark provides a portrait of Jesus as a powerful man, confident of his choices, but thoroughly trusting in God even as he faces persecution and ultimately death. Mark's words are an encouragement to uncertain disciples of all the ages to see clearly the path Jesus invites us to follow and to understand why we can put our trust and confidence in him.
