Exploring Lectio Divina

On three Tuesdays in March: 12, 19, 26, you are invited to come on a journey to discover a more personalised reading of the Scriptures to try and hear what God is saying to you.

In her book “Too Deep For Words”, Thelma Hall outlines the four steps of Lectio  as:

Seek in READING

and you will find in MEDITATION

knock in PRAYER

and it will be opened to you in CONTEMPLATION

She also says: “Far from being an esoteric way of prayer, intended for a sophisticated or chosen few, Lectio is in fact such a simple and effortless way of praying via sacred scripture that one wonders how, together with its contemplative dimension, it ever fell into disuse and obscurity. “

Come and find out whether you agree with this view as we go on a journey of exploration together in the Lindisfarne Lounge.

Come To Quiet

The regular meetings of the Contemplative Prayer Group will resume on the first Tuesday of March and will not be held in February.

Everyone is invited to join us in this practice of silent prayer held in the Lindisfarne Lounge on the first Tuesday of every month from 7 – 9pm.

Come and experience what is contained in this bit of Zen wisdom:

Sitting still

Doing nothing

Spring comes

And the grass grows by itself.
