Bible, Community and Reality

Hearing the Word of God Today

Small Christian Communities all around the world are discovering a fresh understanding of the Bible as a tool for everyday living.

Bible - Community - RealityAs people gather in community, they bring the daily reality of their lives, their problems and other circumstances, with them to the Bible - where God speaks to their needs.

The Bible becomes a resource for reflection to see how they can serve God better in their neighbourhood, their workplace, church, and the wider world.

Hearing the Word of God comes about when people read the Bible in the light of the everyday things that happen to them and to others, in their own context, and as they meet together in community.

Because the criteria of Community, Bible and Reality are inter-related, they are moving towards a common objective: to listen to God today.
