Guided Practice Group - Lectio Divina
Lectio divina (literally translated as divine reading) is an ancient practice of engaging with a sacred text through attending, pondering, responding, and resting in the presence of God. Learn, practice, and connect in the company of others with our guided practice group.
Each week this group will explore scripture passages from the Revised Common Lectionary, reading scripture slowly and prayerfully while paying special attention to words and phrases that capture the imagination, and learning to recognize these as opportunities for prayer.
Each guided practice group will meet once a week for one hour via Zoom for four weeks. Sessions will include an introduction and teaching for any who may be new to each practice (or who would appreciate a refresher or a new perspective). The center portion of each session will be spent in practice together. The last part of our time together each week will be set aside for questions, answers, and further connection. Participants will receive an email each week with a Zoom link to join the group.
No experience is needed to join a guided practice group. Beginners and long-time practitioners alike will benefit from the intentional time spent in shared practice.
ABOUT SACRED ORDINARY DAYS
Sacred Ordinary Days offers a fresh approach, holistic tools, and time-honored resources to help people grow in Christ-likeness—and help the church come together—through intentional Christian spiritual formation.
We create tools rooted in ancient practices and rhythms but translated with a clean aesthetic, and accessible language. We create courses to help you learn, practice, and connect with kindred spirits. We curate resources that help you fill out your toolkit. Ultimately, we believe that helping people grow in Christlikeness will build the church and, in turn, the kingdom. The building blocks are sacred, ordinary days.
