In preparation for worship this Sunday, using the spiritual discipline of lectio divina, read Acts 16:9-15. Herein, you will find the beginning of Paul's second missionary journey that will last three years and cover about 2000 miles. Included in this journey will be stops in Greek cities to which he will eventually address letters: Philippi, Thessalonica, Corinth, and Ephesus.
After prayerfully contemplating the text, consider the following:
- What prompts Paul to travel to Macedonia?
- What did Paul sense God wanted him to do?
- How is Philippi described in this text?
- What do Paul and his companions do on the Sabbath day?
- Who is Lydia?
As always, I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday. Until that time, may God bless your comings and your goings.
Grace & Peace,
