This week Pastor Burkey invites us to begin to develop a spiritual habit called “Lectio Divina” (Spiritual Reading):
Pastor Burkey has found Lectio Divina to be a powerful tool for God speaking into his daily life as he engages in His Word in no more than 8 verses a reading. Here are the guidelines he uses, and 6 days of passages for us to use. The first 2 days he will pick the phrase (sometimes it’s only a word), and then he will let us choose the other 4 days. CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS.
Day 1: Read/Lectio: Mark 10:46-52: Phrase: vs. 51 “What do you want me to do for you?”
Day 2: Read/Lectio: Psalm 23:1-6: Phrase: vs. 1 “The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.”
Day 3: Read/Lectio: Philippians 3:8-9. Phrase: ________________________.
Day 4: Read/Lectio: Philippians 3:10-11. Phrase: ________________________.
