Lectio Divina Immersion Retreat
August 7 @ 8:00 am - August 9 @ 5:00 pm
Lectio Divina Immersion Weekend Retreat
presented via Zoom-online platform
Friday, August 7, 2020, 7:00 – 8:00 PM CDT
Saturday, August 8, 2020, 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM CDT
Presented by: The Contemplative Outreach Lectio Divina Service Team
This online retreat provides an opportunity to explore and deepen one’s individual practice of Lectio Divina as a way of praying the scriptures in an online community. The traditional four moments of the prayer (reading, reflecting, responding and rest) are explored as expressions of the four senses of scripture: the literal, allegorical, behavioral/moral, and unitive senses. The monastic form of Lectio Divina is used for both individual and group experiences of the prayer. Prayer times will be followed by small group faith sharing. The fruits and gifts of Becoming a Word of God will be explored using the Lectio Divina method on a personal life experience.
Our time together includes periods of silent prayer, such as Centering Prayer, to support the praying of Holy Scripture. Profound silence helps us open our hearts and minds to hear with the ear of our hearts both the presented conference materials and the scripture we pray.
