The Contemplative Dimension of Life,
The Fifth Moment of Lectio Divina

May 5, 2018

8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Mike Potter


Do you aspire to deepen your relationship with God by living the life that God calls you to live?  In this workshop, we will briefly review and practice the four moments of Lectio Divina and then focus on its “fifth” moment: living the contemplative dimension of life in a Lectio Divina manner. Specific practices will be introduced, in both large and small group settings, to help you identify how God is moving in and shaping your life as you explore the fruits of your deepening relationship with God. In addition, morning and mid-afternoon periods of Centering Prayer will help open your mind and heart to hear God’s promptings on a deeper level.
