SCRIPTURE

The word of God is alive and active.
Hebrews 4:12

As disciples of Jesus, we are invited to take on His lifestyle, His own habits, and weave them into the rhythm of our everyday lives. His practices not only draw us into a reunion with Him, but they also create the conditions for His Spirit to transform us. 

We want to equip you with the practice of scripture reading by introducing you to an ancient and an unhurried way of reading the Bible that opens us up to the life and activity of God in the rhythm of our daily lives. 

This way of daily reading is not for gaining more information. It is for our formation. God wants to meet us in His Word; all we need to do is slow down, savour the Scriptures, and be open to Him speaking directly to us.

Based on Lectio Divina, or ‘Divine Reading’, this Spirit-filled practice invites us to listen for God as He personally speaks to us through His Word. Through the movements of resting, reading, reflection, and response, we can become open and available to God everyday.

Blessed is the one
whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on His law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
And whose leaf does not wither –
whatever they do prospers.

Psalm 1: 1-3
