You're invited to participate in a six week introduction to the beautiful practice of Lectio Divina.
The term Lectio Divina literally means divine reading, and it's an ancient practice of praying the scriptures. During Lectio Divina, the practitioner listens to the text of the Bible with the "ear of the heart" as if he or she were in conversation with God, and God is suggesting the topics of conversation. The method of Lectio Divina includes moments of reading (lectio), reflecting on (meditatio), responding to (oratio), and resting in (contemplatio) the Word of God with the aim of nourishing and deepening one's relationship with the Divine.
