Shared Lectio Divina, 28 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 6.30-35

Word: true


What is truth in the media and politics today? What are ‘bread’ and ‘true bread’, and what is actually nourishing? I am not finding the news helpful, but am finding these Lectio sessions together to be nourishing, so will continue them.
