Faith from the Margins to the Web is a freely available Gospel commentary and bible study blog which is updated across liturgical seasons, following the Revised Common Lectionary. Each Gospel reflection emerges from shared conversation between at least two people from very different backgrounds. For each bible study, a college student or member of a parish community has been paired with someone living in poverty, often someone who is homeless or experiencing housing and food insecurity. Both people choose to participate in a shared experience of reading the Gospel lesson together, prayer, and responding to questions and reflections about how the the scripture has meaning and relevance in their lives.
Each blog post for Faith from the Margins to the Web is a result of their shared conversation. Fair compensation is offered, equally, to all contributors and interviewers who participate in the project in order for their contributions to be fairly and equitably shared with those who read their reflections.
