Book Resources: Chapter 2: Intro to Lectio Divina (Archbishop Collins) - Part 2

 

Archbishop Collins with an Intro to Lectio Divina

Film Focus Point: Intro to the ancient practice of Lectio Divina with Archbishop Collins. Collins explains what it is and how to practice it in two parts. (Note: the first part is long (almost 10 minutes) but segments could be used, ideally from 1:10 onward. The second part is more of a “how-to” and could easily be used in its entirety from 0:25 onward.)

Text Focus Point: Pages 39-41

Discussion Questions:

  1. How is Lectio Divina different than studying the Bible?
  2. Why would we ask what a passage is saying to our head, heart, and hands? What does each of those mean?
  3. Does this sound like a practice you would be likely to try on your own? Why or why not?
