Join us for a communal Lenten Lectio Divina guided by Beth Mersino. Open to all adults.
(Bring a Bible or use one from our library)
What is Lectio Divina?
We live in a day and age where Scripture is often understood as something to dissect and control so that we can figure it all out and arrive at the “right” interpretations. While digging deep into Scripture and studying it has also always been an important part of the tradition, we have somewhat lost the ability to listen to it well. We know how to read the Bible, but we aren’t always comfortable with letting it “read” us.
The 4-step process that is commonly known as Lectio Divina is an invitation to reclaim the art of listening well to Scripture […] so that we can hear what fresh Word God is speaking to us today. Rather than controlling it, we leave space for God to simply communicate with us.
