Live the Word

This thought-provoking bulletin has a Sunday reflection that is sometimes focused on the Sunday Gospel, other times it is seasonally appropriate but most often writers guide readers on short thematic series. Recent enlightening themes have included: bellringing, rogationtide, the music of ordinary time and vocation. A reflection on the daily readings for the week ahead is featured on the left hand side of Live the Word and this engages the reader with the weekly scripture whether the succession of Solomon or Jesus’ ministry in Judaea. The weekly readings are neatly listed as well as the collect.
