FAITH MATTERS

Lectio Divina inspires

Slow, deliberate reading yields connection to God

When we first joined St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Fayetteville, one of the supports for spiritual formation was a daily email from the rector, the Rev. Lowell Grisham, called "Morning Reflections." Each email provided a list of that day's lectionary readings, along with brief reflections from Lowell. This summer, the church began inviting interested parishioners to volunteer to take turns writing them. This involves reading that day's passage from the Old Testament, some Psalms, an Epistle and a reading from the Gospel, and then writing a paragraph or two of personal reflection. I signed up to write a "Morning Reflection" about once a month, and I am finding it a very interesting experience.
