Workshop Level: Intermediate

In Lectio Divina we read and hear the Holy Scripture. We then pray and reflect, and spend time in silence with our God. Meeting with our patients we listen actively and hear their sacred stories. As we receive the stories we notice something in what they are saying resonating with us. In Lectio Divina scripture resonates with us. This reflective prayer and our ministry share much in common, including compassio and operatio, compassion and action.
As a result of this workshop, participants will:
- Know how to pray the Lectio Divina.
- Be able to apply the method of prayer to the ministry of listening.
- Renew or learn a new way of deepening your ministry.
