Presented by: The Contemplative Outreach Lectio Divina Service Team
This online workshop offered on the Zoom platform provides an opportunity to “listen with the ear of your heart” to explore and deepen your practice of monastic Lectio Divina as a way of praying the scriptures. The traditional four moments of the prayer (reading, reflecting, responding and rest) are explored as expressions of the four senses of scripture: the literal, allegorical, behavioral/moral, and unitive senses. The fruits and gifts of Becoming a Word of God will be discussed and celebrated. Small group faith sharing will be included.
