    Week 22 | Divine Reading (Lectio Divina) | 1 Peter 1:24-25

    We'd love to connect with you and hear stories of what God has said to you through these times in His presence. Reach out via podcast@thehopeco.com or follow along with us on Instagram @practicinghispresence!

    We love this description of the practice of Lectio Divina from John Mark Comer:

    "Lectio Divina (Latin for “spiritual reading”) is a way of reading Scripture with the specific aim of hearing God’s voice over your life. There are four basics movements (from four Latin words), but the mechanics are not as important as many people think. It’s less of a technique, and more of a heart posture and pace.

    The basic idea is simply to find a quiet place to read Scripture slowly with your ear open to God’s voice through the text. Unlike Bible study (another wonderful practice) the goal is less to hear what he was saying to them (the original audience), but to take the next step and hear what he is saying to you."

Chris M. Brown ,

Heart, substance and excellence!

I initially listened in to this podcast with a musical and technical mindset and although this podcast has elite technical and musical qualities, it more importantly ushered me into God‘s presence in a very powerful way. I absolutely love the heartbeat behind all this musical talent. Thank you!
