Shared Lectio Divina, 23 June 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…

Gospel reading: Matthew 7.6,12-14

Words: in everything

Reflections:

In context… ‘In everything’ is a tall order – holding nothing back, doing the work. I can’t help thinking, though, that it would be better not to ‘do as you would be done by’ but to do as the other person would be done by.

Out of context… God is in everything, permeates Creation, to the deepest core of my being. I am in God in everything. God is all in all, and I will rest in my all and spend time with God indwelling.
