Condensed School of Lectio Divina [Online]
Lectio Divina is an ancient practice of slowly engaging a sacred text over an extended period of time. When it is sustained in this way, lectio divina includes interrelated moments of reading, reflecting, responding to, and resting in the Word, all with the hope of nourishing and deepening our relationship with God. The Condensed School of Lectio Divina, available now online, offers contemporary seekers an experiential opportunity to learn this practice with support. Participants in this weekend retreat will use Zoom for large group presentation, small group discussion, and times of prayer. They will also commit to sustain their practice of lectio divina by cultivating times to engage their sacred text offline and by exploring how they might integrate lectio divina into their lives in practical ways. The Condensed School of Lectio Divina serves as an excellent introduction to and/or a good review of the five-day School of Lectio Divina.
