Exploring Today’s Lectionary through Lectio Divina
Sunday, May 20 at 9:00 am in the Bloom Room
Interested in a method that makes scripture accessible and relevant? Join us as we dive into the intrigue of scripture by looking at the lectionary readings for this Sunday. Lectio Divina has its roots in the third and fourth centuries. It is a timeless gift to us from the monastic communities. From the Benedictine perspective, Richard Rohr describes this method of reading scripture, called Lectio Divina, as one that looks for wisdom instead of quick answers. It says, “What does this text ask of me? How can I change because of this story?” What you need to bring to our discussion? Simply, your life, and an open-hearted curiosity. What you will leave with is a method that is always within your reach.
