We interact with the Bible not so much for information as formation. God's words to us have the power to change our lives. They are alive and active. This makes the Bible fundamentally different from any book ever penned. One crucial way we encounter those ancient words is called lectio divina, which means a 'spiritual reading' of the text. In lectio, we reflect, meditate, and let God imprint heavenly realities on our souls.
In this brief article, Richard Foster (from Renovare ministry) explains more about the practice of lectio divina, and how God uses it in our lives. It's a unique way to dig into the Bible, and we are confident you'll find treasures in it. Make sure to also check out the resource called "CCCHURCH Lectio Divina" guide in this section. It outlines a specific process for individuals and groups.
