About this event

Lectio Divina

Where: Westcity Church

When: Saturday August 14 @ 9am 

Who: Adults (16 years or older). You are so welcome.

What: Lectio Divina (or in Latin "divine reading") is a prayerful way of reading Scripture, practiced from very early in the Christian centuries. The purpose is not gathering information, but communion with God. It is an explicit attempt to pray Scripture, rather than quickly read it –as we might flick through an online newspaper. It is a way to slow down our reading of Scripture so that we don't miss Jesus speaking to us. Lectio Divina is about opening ourselves to a conversation that is already in progress, that we have all been invited to.

It is best when it isn't a discipline but a way of being with God. Conversation and communion linked together by Spirit and Word. Heart and mind linked by the Spirit. Lectio Divina combines listening in a small community and individual space to think and pray in your heart and mind. The practice itself will take 60 minutes and the time flies by!

Cost and registration: Free. Please register by August 1st.

What to bring: Just your lovely self, a bible, notebook and pen.

Organiser Westcity Church

Organiser of Lectio Divina

WE ARE A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO ARE ALL ABOUT JESUS(Well, what did you expect from a church?)

We are old people and young, artists, people with disabilities, lawyers and plumbers, activists and accountants who have been captured by, and caught up in God’s Dream for the world and God’s purpose for our lives, that we see revealed in this Jesus.

 Maybe we are a church for those who don’t like ‘church’. A church for those who don’t want to play religious games or be entertained  but on a good day, desire to live the love that God has shown us.
