At the heart of Seeking God in Scripture is the conviction that only through deep prayer, reflection and meditation do people of faith come to know God and God’s purposes for us. There is also an understanding that the Scriptures are themselves the sources of discipleship and prayer; and that only by sustained reflection on their teachings do we become aware of the Spirit’s leading us to complete truth, about God, about the Christ, about the Spirit, about ourselves within the community of believers.
