Description EHoP Circles: Group Lectio Divina

Lectio Divina is Latin for “Sacred Reading.” The individual model for deeply engaging sacred texts as part of the monastic traditions is well over 1,500 years old! Lectio Divina is a layered process in which the reader’s engagement with the text naturally deepens through reading, meditating, praying with, and contemplating the sacred texts. As a group model, Lectio Divina is distinct from other small group models such as Bible Studies. Whereas the emphasis in a Bible Study is typically acquisition of knowledge, the emphasis in Lectio Divina Groups is prayerful engagement with the text. Together, members of the group ruminate on the same text together by reading and re-reading a small section of text. As a member of the group, you listen to the text, and also listen for glimmers of words and images that speak to you, thus inviting you to consider how the words and meaning of the text might be speaking to your daily life experiences. Lectio Divina Groups meet weekly, and the EHoP series will consist of six one-hour sessions, dates TBD by group members.
