And I tell you, you are Peter,
and on this rock I will build my church,
and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it.
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven,
and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven,
and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
~ Matthew 16:18-19 (NRSV)

Studying Sunday’s Scripture through Lectio Divina
Lectio Divina is a creative way of inviting participants into an experience of the Word of God and its spiritual power. The study consists of four parts: Reading Holy Scripture, Meditation, Prayer, and Contemplation. This has become a new and different way of studying scripture, leng the scriptures speak to you through the four steps and the working of the Holy Spirit.
The study will take place on Wednesdays during Lent from 7:00 pm until 8:00 pm in Margaret Woods Hall, starting on February 24. No materials needed except a bible. We will be spaced out 6ft. apart; hand sanitizing and mask required.
If you are interested, please call Deacon Bob at 630‐217‐0851 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
