Praying with Scripture

Praying with Scripture (Lectio Divina) reflects upon a scripture reading through guided meditation with Lectio Divina - a prayer form that taps into the "spiritual sense" of scripture. "Lectio Divina," means "holy/divine reading." The purpose is to see how the scripture is addressed to me, as an individual, at this moment of my life: "How is God touching my life today through these passages?" This enables the Bible to become a means of closer union with God. Praying with Scripture meets weekly on Thursdays from 7:30-8:30pm in the Kinane Center.
