The Group:

This group is held on campus for those that often struggle to find time to attend a weekly Bible study.  Because of the nature of Lectio, it is always a set amount of time (less then one hour) and because of its convenient location it's perfect for a busy student.  

What is Lectio Divina?

Lectio Divina is Latin for divine reading.  It is a practice of scriptural reading, meditation and prayer intended to promote communion with God and to increase the knowledge of God's Word.  It does not treat Scripture as texts to be studied, but as the Living Word.  Though it is an ancient tradition, coming from the Benedictine monks, many enjoy the practice of intently studying a small part of scripture and reflecting on it in such a busy culture.

They're studying:

Scriptures from correlating to current sermons

This includes:

  • Prayer throughout the study. 
  • Reading the chapter of the Bible the sermon will be preached on.  As well as focusing in on one or two verses as a group.
  • Silence and reflection to ask “What is God showing or teaching me in this passage?”
  • Seeking a measurable application of God's Word each week.
