The SOAR blog is an effort to promote biblical literacy and provide a resource for pastors and lay Christians alike.

S – Search the Scripture.

O – Observe what it is saying and interpret what it means in its own context.

A – Apply it to life and our current context.

R – Respond to the Scripture with a personal commitment, or insight.

The Bible study always concludes with a brief prayer inspired by the encounter with God’s Word.

The Scripture readings are taken from the Revised Common Lectionary. The Lectionary is a three-year cycle of weekly Bible readings that some Protestant churches use as the scriptural foundation for their weekly worship services.

Usually these readings include a passage from the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament), a Psalm, an Epistle selection, and a reading from one of the Gospels.

Tom Letchworth died suddenly and unexpectedly on June 27, 2018.
Since the Lectionary cycles every three years, all of Tom’s SOAR Lectionary Bible Studies have already been posted. (He started the blog in October, 2014.) His wife will continue copying the Bible studies and reposting with current dates each week.  We plan to be current again by the middle of July.
