B-15 Praying the Scripture Through Lectio Divina: Ever Ancient Ever New
The Word of God is alive and active, transforming each of us when we are open to receive what God is giving us. This workshop will give some background on
Lectio Divina, the Church’s most ancient way of praying the Scriptures. This method of praying offers a way of prayerfully reading Scripture in God’s presence, with a desire to deepen our intimacy with God, and open our hearts to what God wants us to experience today. We will practice this form of personal encounter and dialogue with God, as its movements are explained.
