I haven’t posted on my blog for a long while due to publication deadlines and other obstacles. But at several speaking engagements I promised to run my online course on classical lectio divina again this Advent.
The classic form of this ancient spiritual discipline is far richer (and a far better starting point) than the various modern versions of lectio divina.
Lectio Divina is a prayerful way of engaging with Scripture
- It is more prayerful than typical Bible study.
- It engages the Bible more richly than typical prayer.
Think of it as a way to meet God where God has been waiting to meet you all along.
The course has options for both individuals and study groups, so if you would like to lead an adult-ed course or small group on lectio divina, here’s an easy way to make it happen.
A Lectio Divina class for Advent?
Advent is a time designed for spiritual renewal as we prepare to celebrate the coming of Jesus Christ in the world at Christmas. Exploring a classic Christian prayerful approach to the Bible may be just the thing to get you in the real spirit of Christmas.
I hope you will join us! I think you will find it fun, informative, and a time of real growth in faith.
