Bible reading responses

I have always been troubled by the responsive "The Word of God for the People of God" after the scripture readings. Usually I am just beginning to think about what the reading means, when my thoughts are interrupted by this response. It seems as though I should not try to contemplate what the Bible really means, but should accept the rote reading without thought or question. This makes the reading meaningless for me.
