Compline combined with Lectio Divina
December 14, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 7:45 pm
At the Church of The Ascension we’re fortunate to have a lot of different opportunities to engage with scripture and deepen our faith, from Sunday morning formation to EFM, to Monday Food and Fellowship and so much more. As we enter into the season of Advent, you’re invited to participate in a quieter, more contemplative way of experiencing God’s word and preparing for the birth of Christ with a Thursday evening service of Compline combined with Lectio Divina. Lectio Divina (Divine Reading) is a way of reading a single passage of scripture more slowly and deliberately then we usually do in normal Sunday worship, combined with spending time in silence, and listening for the word of God. Lectio Divina is less about understanding what a piece of scripture “means” and more about experiencing and “feeling” it.
As we move into the busy holiday season, this will be a great opportunity to have some scheduled time for peace and reflection.
