Knowing & Growing
In this 8-week course, taking us from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday in a series of one hour sessions for group study, David Adam shares with us a method which follows the Church's ancient tradition of prayer and reading Scripture called Lectio Divina, or 'Holy Reading'. Each chapter includes suggested resources, hymns and prayers to help illustrate a theme to be discussed and reflected upon, together with a reading from scripture of one of the parables in the Gospels, carefully chosen because of the simple pictures the create while also exposing up to deep mysteries and challenges. Every time we extend ourselves to reach beyond the obvious and the immediate, we are reaching towards a higher awareness and potential and the abundant life God wants us to live.
