The Christian form of Lectio Divina was first introduced by St. Gregory of Nyssa (c. 330- 395), and also encouraged by St. Benedict of Nursia (c. 480-547), the founder of the Benedictine order. It’s a way of developing a closer relationship with God by reflecting prayerfully on God’s word. When we practice Lectio Divina, we can imagine we’re actually involved in the events of Scripture. It can be a very personal experience.

Visio Divina, Latin for “divine seeing,” is a method of meditation, reflection, and prayer through a process of intentional seeing. Visio Divina extends the Benedictine practice of Lectio Divina by the use of visual imagery. Traditionally, Visio Divina was accompanied by Benedictine iconography and illuminations; however, different faith traditions have adapted the process over time, utilizing contemporary images. 

Join us each week as we practice both Lectio Divina & Visio Divina and enter more deeply into the sacred words (scripture) and images that will guide us through the season of Lent. No experience in either practice necessary to listen and learn together. Facilitated by Erin Tyler & Melissa St. Clair.
