Lectio Naturae: Sacred Reading of the Book of Nature (Zoom)
April 19, 2024 | Friday 10:30 a.m.-noon CDT
Facilitated by: S. Elizabeth Carrillo
Just as lectio divina is a slow, contemplative praying of the scriptures, which leads us into union with God; lectio naturae is an invitation to listen deeply with the ear of the heart for God’s voice speaking to us through the natural world. Steeped in the tradition of the ancient Church, this practice recognizes that God has given us two complementary books: the book of scripture and the book of nature. Join us for a time of prayerful, experiential encounter with opportunities for personal prayer and sharing insights with one another.
Please register by April 19.
Additional date: May 17
