Lunchtime Lectio | Week 1, Day 1

Monday, October 5 2020 by Matt Horan

Hello Members and Friends of Heritage United Methodist!

Each day during the Disicple’s Heart series, I’ll be sending you the 5-minute “Lunchtime Lectio.”  Lectio Divina means “divine reading,” and it’s the last part of each reading for the day in the Disciple’s Heart daily workbook.

  1. Read the day’s passage of Scripture slowly, listening for the resonance of each word in your soul as you read it.
  2. Read it through again, listening for the word or phrase that grabs your heart more than any other in the passage.
  3. Spend a moment in quiet prayer, simply saying the word or phrase over and over again, asking God to reveal to you why that one stood out.
  4. Finally, share in the comments below which word or phrase stood out to you.  If you feel led to share, include a sentence or two about why God pointed you toward these words in particular.

Perhaps together we can see what God is saying to us as a church when we consider together what He’s sharing with us as individuals!

Sincerely,

Pastor Matt

Today’s Disciple’s Path Lectio Divina reading is Mark 1:16-20.

          As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”

          At once they left their nets and followed him. When he had gone a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John in a boat, preparing their nets. Without delay he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and followed him. (Mark 1:16-20, NIV)

Which word or phrase do you feel led to reflect on today?  Please share in the comment section below!
