Power in the Word Group

Bistum Essen. In Hosea chapter 4:6, the Lord says, “my people perish for want of knowledge….” Here, we could say for lack of knowledge of the Scriptures. Thanks to the Vatican II reforms and to the awareness created by the protestant movements in the 1960s and 1970s, the Church encourages more than ever before the study of the Bible by the lay faithful. On going by that, we have a group called, ‘Power in the Word’. The group meets every Wednesday evening to read, reflect and or share the Word of God under the moderation of the priest. The members, through the Bible-sharing, draw strength for their Christian living.
