What’s Lectio Divina?

The Bible is a collection of books written during different historical periods from different cultural perspectives and contains a variety of genres and languages. A question emerges for all of us who want to get off the curb, crack open this book, and enter into its unfolding story.  How do we in the 21st Century read the Bible meaningfully?  Lectio Divina or Sacred Reading is a way of reading the Bible that allows us to hear, enter into, and find a home within God’s story.
