This Bible Study runs Tuesday mornings 11-12 noon. Lectio Divina"means "divine reading" and describes a way of reading the Scriptures whereby we gradually let go of our own agenda and open ourselves to what God wants to say to us. In this bible study we will read a bible passage 3 times and from 3 different translations. The first time it is read, the group members consider a word or a phrase that jumps out at them, and are invited to share that word or phrase if they want. Then a different person from the group would read the passage again with a pause for silence. Different emphases might be suggested after each reading. For example:
What gift does this passage lead me to ask from the Lord?
What does this passage call me to do?
