(Public Lecture) Today this Scripture is Fulfilled in Your Hearing: The Practice of Sustained Lectio Divina
With Kathleen Cahalan
October 27, 2017
The ancient practice of lectio divina has been retrieved and practiced in a variety of ways today. One method is sustained lectio divina—a dialogue with God through the text over time. What does sustained attention to the same text reveal to us about God, ourselves, and our world?
While lectio divina is a form of personal, private prayer it has the power to transform our spiritual lives in ways that have important social, interpersonal, and political consequences. When the text is fulfilled through our listening and response, we participate more fully in God’s renewal of the world around us.
