Lectio Divina is a tool that allows us to take steps, surrendering our own voice and listening instead to God through His Word. We're here to seek God's face, just as He tells us to.
In this practice, we are not adding to God's Word or expecting Him to say something He's not already said in His Word, but instead giving God our full attention (as much as we are able to do that) and setting aside the distractions that badger us all day long. Lectio Divina is an exercise in listening, with our mouths closed and our hearts open. This free package contains an experiential video and handout. Experience Lectio Divina for yourself, or with your small group.
Scripture Scribing is the practice of writing a Bible verse or a passage; this daily practice slows us down, positions us to interact with the details of The Word, and often reveals nuances in even the most familiar of verses. The process of scribing allows the scribe to ponder new insights, to pray, to examine questions prompted during the process, and to receive God's gift of peace that passes all understanding. People who faithfully scribe Scripture would attest that this practice is foundational to their daily devotional time. This interview video with Carolyn Bira and Jenny Long answers all your questions, and helps you get started!
The new Scripture Scribing practice was launched September 27, 2022. Watch the video of the zoom launch event, try your hand at scripture scribing, and hear three tips for beginning scripture scribing!
