The Businessmen’s Bible Study meetings are centered around readings from the Daily Lectionary, with the goal of encouraging daily Bible reading, reflection, and prayer. Men prepare by reading the lectionary for the day; during the meetings, they have time for quiet reflection and then discuss the scripture, both objectively and subjectively as it relates to their own lives at work or home. Discussion is focused on how the day’s reading can help them be more intentional about Christian belief and action during their day; allowing time to offer support and solutions to one another, as well as the sharing of personal experiences of how faith has helped them in their professional and personal lives. The Daily Lectionary may be found at dailylectionary.org and sign-up is available for the readings to be delivered via daily email.
Beginning in early fall, the Businessmen’s Bible Study will continue through late spring 2016. The meetings accommodate up to 16 men, and are open to all, both parishioners and non-parishioners. Registration is required and may be completed online or via telephone at 941-400-9140.
This program for businessmen is one of many ministries and activities offered specifically for men at the Church of the Redeemer through the Men of Redeemer.
