Friends, I’d like to take this opportunity to invite y’all, liberal or conservative, queer or not queer, female or male, black or white, Mac or Windows, coffee or tea, craft or PBR, rocks or neat to take some time over Lent to Come Aside a While into the spiritual practice of lectio divina via livestreaming.com each Wednesday of Lent at 9 p.m. EST beginning Ash Wednesday . In this practice we can give ourselves the gift of slowing down, attending “with the ears of our hearts” to our own lives, listening for God’s tangible presence and exploring our engaged response to immeasurable grace.
Lectio divina is a slow, contemplative praying of the Scriptures. It is quiet, intentional time enabling us to explore in our daily lives an underlying spiritual rhythm.
I am immensely grateful for the support of and partnership with Extravagance UCC and The Liminal Space Cafe as we work together to create a thin space where we can be quite together, listen to the Word speaking in our lives and discern in community ways in which God is calling us forward.
