If you've ever wanted to really explore the scriptures, or maybe you've heard about Lectio Divina but don't know much about it, next week you have an opportunity to dive deep and learn. Prof. Jonathan Linman (whom I've taken and can attest is a great professor, by the way) will be teaching the class. Here are the details: Lectio Divina Practicum AT 343 (for one credit) Adjunct Professor Jonathan Linman Meeting Times: Wednesday, March 12 – Friday, March 14, 2014 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
Course Description: Sacred reading (lectio divina) is a foundational Christian spiritual discipline. In this spiritual direction practicum, students will be introduced to the history and theology of lectio divina and will explore the dynamics of this discipline in dialogue with linguistic, literary and psychoanalytic theories. Further, they will engage in the group practice of lectio divina, in order to deepen their own encounters with sacred texts and learn the art of discerning the word of God speaking to them. By the conclusion of the course, students will be able to lead lectio divina groups in various ministerial settings.
