In this space, we will experience the Lectio Divina. We will use this ancient bible reading practice to draw us closer to God through the stages of lectio, oratio, meditatio, and contemplatio.

In this space, we will experience the psalms in many ways to lead us to God. We will sing the psalms, watch them sung, chant the psalms, listen to chants, experience prayer stations that use the psalms.

In this space, we will meditate on Scripture, on creation, on spiritual literature among other holy things. Our desire is to grow closer to God through the practice of meditation. For Christians, meditation is within the kataphatic tradition, focusing on filling your mind and heart with holy things. This is not to be confused with contemplation, where one sits before God in emptiness (the apophatic tradition).

Praying the Hours

In this space, we experience the praying of the hours together. Historically these prayers were said every three hours over a twenty-four period, but some pray these twice or three times a day. In this space, we share our experiences as we each draw closer to God.
