Breaking Open the Word: Best Practices
ANNUAL MINISTRY RENEWAL DAY
November 4, 2011
Presenters: Thomas H. Groome, STM professor of theology and religious education, and Daniel J. Harrington, S.J., STM professor of New Testament and editor, New Testament Abstracts
This workshop provides guidelines for preparing Scripture and the tools for making it accessible to all age groups and for all needs—teaching, preaching, praying, sharing, spiritual direction, and more. Drawing on the best biblical scholarship, Fr. Harrington offers guidelines on how to prepare, research, and access the text. Then, through participation and reflection, Prof. Groome offers an approach to appropriating Scripture that “brings participants’ lives to the Bible and the Bible to their lives.”
