Lectio Divina: Mornings of Reflection During Advent
Mondays, November 30, December 7, 14, and 21, 10:00 - 11:00 am
Lectio Divina or Sacred Reading is the slow, repetitive reading of a sacred text that leads one to the ultimate step of resting in God. It is not Scripture study, nor is it spiritual reading. It is an invitation to take a “long, loving look at Scripture” as spiritual director Teresa Blythe states, “a time for falling in love with the Word and experiencing the goodness of God.”
This four-step process for being with Scripture in a prayerful manner includes: Reading (Lectio); Meditating (Meditatio); Praying (Oratio); and Contemplating (Contemplatio). Using texts for Advent, you will experience this ancient prayer form in a group setting, though it is easily adapted to individual practice and can be incorporated into your prayer life.
Facilitator: Pat Jones is a spiritual director, Psychologist Emeritus, and former Benedictine.
