Lectio Divina

Lectio Divina: Divine Reading for Difficult Times


As we navigate difficult and challenging times, and we are unable to attend Church services, we offer some divine reading passages and guidance for following an ancient approach to contemplating Scripture. Below, we will offer a text for you to follow this week.

We follow guidance from a wonderful little book entitled Too Deep for Words: Rediscovering Lectio Divina, by Thelma Hall.

This exercise can be carried out alone, or with others.

There are four steps to the Lectio Divina exercise:

1: Lectio – Reading and listening to the Word of God.

2: Meditatio – Reflecting on the word.

3: Oratio – The Word touches the heart.

4: Contemplatio – Entering the Silence “Too Deep for Words.”
