Shared Lectio Divina, 21 April 2020

Since April 2020, I have been jointly hosting a shared Lectio group on Tuesday evenings. The following are my reflections only, during the prayer session and as I wrote them up. Please see my separate commentary and leaflet for more information about shared Lectio, and here is the whole collection of reflections…

(The first three sessions were a trial. Will shared Lectio work on Zoom? Will the sessions be helpful to the Cathedral community in the early days of lockdown?)

Gospel reading: John 3.7-15

Words: How can these things be?

Reflections:

Nicodemus used the same words as Mary at the Annunciation, but compare an untutored small-town girl with a leader of the Jews (John 3.1).
