Lectio Divina, Latin for divine reading, is the ancient Christian practice of communicating with God through the reading and study of Scripture. This Bible study builds on this practice, introducing modern readers of the Bible to the time-honored tradition of "listening for God" through His Word incorporating silence, reading, meditation and prayer.
Lectio Divina, Latin for divine reading, is a series of Bible studies that calls Christians to slow down, read Scripture, meditate on it, and prayerfully respond as they "listen to God" through His Word. The book of Philippians is filled with statements of rejoicing, prayerful thanksgiving, loving compassion, and gentle exhortation. While many threads run through this four-chapter book, a dominant theme is that Jesus Christ and living the way He directs have a direct impact on everyday life.
