The Big Picture - You, The Bible & God's Plan....

Permalink



Do you wonder what relevance is the bible to me in my life?  Are you confused as to what the bible is all about? Have you tried to read it but found it a struggle and gave up?   If any of this is you then this course is just what you need….
Any adult 17 +yrs, or youth accompanied by their guardian,   who wants to know more about the bible is welcome to join us – come, bring a friend.
The BIG Picture course is free, however each participant will need their own Big Picture workbook (or daily prayer journal - price £10) and access to a bible. The workbook is essential for the course and includes a copy of the course DVD sessions and accompanying video-clips..   We have 12 engaging sessions taking us through Salvation History; starting at the very beginning with God the Creator right through to the End Times with the Second Coming of Christ. 
A short 4.5minute trailer is available on line: https://vimeo.com/144758134
The course will be held at St Peter’s Church Biggleswade, on six Monday evenings during Lent (starting at 7.15pm on 11th March), and six consecutive Monday evenings during Eastertide (from the 29th April through to 3rdJune).
Each weekly session will begin with an opening prayer, followed by 30 or 40 minutes of sharing what people have written in the daily prayer journal that week.  After a mid-point coffee break a 15-20 minute inspirational DVD will be shown (each participant will have their own DVD in case they miss the session or wish to re-watch it during the week).The DVD session will be followed by a final prayer of blessing for the following week's prayerful study and we’ll close by 9pm.
If you want more details, then call 07751625942.
You may register on line at: goo.gl/18Ktz1  or add your details to the Big Picture list on the church notice board.

With every good blessing,

The Beatitudes in St Luke's Gospel

Permalink
The Beatitudes are not only for the saints but for all of us. They contain both promises of what we shall become and a revelation of what we have begun to be, albeit in perhaps a dim or somewhat hidden way. One way of living the Beatitudes and of putting them into practice is to memorise them, to become as familiar with them as we are with the Our Father or the Hail Mary. This simple step will help us to take them to heart and to cherish them during our day. St Augustine said, "We all want to live happily; in the whole human race there is no one who does not assent to this proposition, even before it is fully articulated."

I thank you Father for everything that gives me happiness. I ask you to purify my heart so that I may know the blessing and the grace of putting the Beatitudes into practice.
