Luke 1:1-4; 4:14-21
Since many have undertaken to compile a narrative of the events
   that have been fulfilled among us,
   just as those who were eyewitnesses from the beginning
   and ministers of the word have handed them down to us,
   I too have decided,
   after investigating everything accurately anew,
   to write it down in an orderly sequence for you,
   most excellent Theophilus,
   so that you may realize the certainty of the teachings
   you have received.

Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit,
   and news of him spread throughout the whole region.
He taught in their synagogues and was praised by all.

He came to Nazareth, where he had grown up,
   and went according to his custom
   into the synagogue on the sabbath day.
He stood up to read and was handed a scroll of the prophet Isaiah.
He unrolled the scroll and found the passage where it was written:
   The Spirit of the LORD is upon me,
      because he has anointed me
      to bring glad tidings to the poor.
   He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives
      and recovery of sight to the blind,
      to let the oppressed go free,
      and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord.
Rolling up the scroll, he handed it back to the attendant and sat down,
   and the eyes of all in the synagogue looked intently at him.
He said to them,
   "Today this Scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing."

Simple Instructions:
After reading the first time…invite to share, a word, a phrase, idea, image or thought.

After reading the second time… invite to share: The power of the Spirit moves me to…

After reading the third time… invite to share… what I am called to do or what I am called to change.

Then move around the circle…offering prayer of thanks (Thank you God…) and petition (Please God…). 

Conclude by praying the Lord’s Prayer together.

Remember one is always free to pass.
