Biblical literacy and understandings of biblical authority with Westfield Church were expanded and deepened when scriptural study focused on a singular narrative arc. By creating their own lectionary (The Year of Mark) and committing to working their way through the gospel of Mark sequentially, congregants felt more deeply tied to the story of their faith, understood more about the Bible as a whole, and deepened their own faith. This year-long effort proved to be an effective entry point into a larger conversation about scripture and its uses within the local parish.
