It can be hard to find time to speak to God when your day is full of work, family and the pressures of daily life and it is with this in mind that we feel that time is right to build on our previous successful prayerful experiences at the Centre for Youth Ministry and re-launch a Lectio Divina programme aimed particularly for Westminster’s young adult community. One of our Allen Hall seminarians, Trevor Ferros, is to lead the evenings and we hope that this programme develops into a regular weekly evening.
Lectio Divina is a dynamic way of reading the Holy Scriptures which has been around since the early days of the Church, in AD 300. It invites you to savour and mull over God’s words quietly, slowly and intently until you begin to hear what God is saying to you, and how you may be called to respond. The evenings tend to last for a couple of hours and during the time together we have time with one another, and time for prayer and contemplation. The evenings can help us to pull apart the stories we know so well to see how God is calling us each individually.
Lectio Divina helps you build that vital bridge between your encounters with God and everyday life with its joys, noise and challenges.
The next Lectio Divina evening is tomorrow (11 November), followed by Tuesday 9 December, starting at 7.30pm at Centre for Youth Ministry, Euston. We look forward to welcoming you!
