Gospel Reflection Groups create weekly opportunities for an individual faculty or staff member to prayerfully engage with students by reading and reflecting upon the Word of God outside of the classroom.
Faculty or staff members are also encouraged to start Gospel Reflection Groups with parents, fellow teachers, and other members of the school community, including members of their partner schools, supporting parish youth groups, and other parish ministries.
There is one teacher in a Gospel Reflection Groups, the Holy Spirit. The group leader merely facilitates the discussion. Gospel Reflection Groups profoundly impact the lives of leaders, students, and other participants, and gradually draw them more deeply into the love of Jesus by regularly experiencing His living Word in small, supportive and encouraging faith communities.
These one hour gatherings are an opportunity to read the Gospel for the coming week, reflect upon it, and share personal insights, reflections from the heart, and your life experiences that tie in with the Gospel. Gospel Reflection Groups can range in size from 2 or 3, up to 30-40.
Gospel Reflection Group materials can be downloaded from www.stewardshipmission.org. Gospel Reflection Group prayer books are mailed upon request from the website, or by contacting Hannah Woodward at 717-369-0100 x20, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
