A Word in Time Bible study
Looking and listening for God in Scripture is one of the commitments of A Methodist Way of Life.
We hope you find A Word in Time supports you in recognising God in Scripture, and the world around you. Each week’s studies are written by volunteers across the Connexion (you can read the author’s biography after each study). They follow the lectionary of the Methodist Prayer Handbook. If you are interested in writing for A Word in Time, please email firstname.lastname@example.org You may additionally be interested in our Prayer of the Day, also from the Methodist Prayer Handbook.
