Exploring Scripture

Exploring Scripture is an experiential class that invites attendees to engage scripture in new ways. We focus on formation that allows the text to form us (and hopefully, transform us.) The weekly Thursday class will primarily practice lectio divina, an ancient spiritual practice that allows us to experience scripture as God’s living Word. Latin for “divine or sacred reading,” lectio divina helps us interact with scripture through quiet reflection and listening for God’s leading.

If you are not able to attend the class, you may practice on your own.
If you are new to lectio divina, click here for instructions.

Pastor Kristie's weekly reflection will focus on one-word or phrase (to coincide with the One-Word Check-In podcast).
