A Dialogue on Praying the Scriptures

Last week Wick Stuckey and I dialogued for a few minutes about the process of praying the Scriptures, what is known as lectio divina or "holy listening". We walked through the process of entering into this ancient manner of opening ourselves to God's speech.

So many of us have been frustrated that we are encouraged to hear God or listen for God's voice, yet we haven't been told how to do it. This video was shot with the intention of walking through the process of listening for God's voice. The practice has been transformative for Wick and me over a long period of time.

If you are interested in this way of praying and opening yourself more deeply to God's voice, you can find the video at, or you can go there by clicking the title of this blogpost.

Big thanks to Josh Warren, who set up and shot the video, and to Wick for suggesting the idea.
