Theologians have sometimes compared the Bible to a pair of glasses: we look through Scripture as through a set of lenses to see God, the world around us, and ourselves more clearly.

Our weekly Bible reflections, available via email, help you to apply a passage of Scripture to your everyday ordinary life: at home, in the workplace, or wherever you are. They come in separate series, written by LICC staff or outside experts, and are based on a variety of themes, biblical books, or liturgical seasons.
