Praying with Scripture (Lectio Divina)

Contact: Beshar Bahjat

The Praying with Scripture group reflects on The Sacred Scripture through meditation using the Lectio Divina form of prayer 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. No prior experience necessary. Praying with Scripture meets weekly on Thursdays from 7:30 - 8:30 p.m. in the Kinane Center.
