Introducing Lectio Divina, the Art of Listening to God through the Bible

This video is to introduce the Christian practice and discipline of Lectio Divina, or devotional reading of Scripture. This practice is about moving beyond knowledge and into the experiential nature of reading the Bible, of feeling and hearing God move and speak in the here and now.

So… what is lectio divina?

Lectio Divina is a method of reading the Bible that is focused on encountering God through the biblical text itself.

That is to say, what does it say to YOU personally? Or, what is God saying to you THROUGH the text as you read and listen to it?

We do this by not focusing on formal study where we would break down the passage or analyze it through a bunch of filters. Instead, we prayerfully listen and attend to the passage as it resonates with and speaks to you at this particular moment in time.

I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge-that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God

Ephesians 3:17-19
