The COCI service team is requesting that event attendees please refrain from wearing perfume, aftershave, or bringing scented candles to our programs as we have some folks who are allergic and cannot enjoy the event.  Thank you so much for your cooperation.

Learning to Listen with the Ear of Our Hearts - An Introduction to Lectio Divina

Lectio Divina is a way of praying with Scripture. It is a means of listening to the word of God in Scripture and it is a traditional way of cultivating friendship with Christ.

During this introduction participants will have the opportunity to learn and to practice this ancient form of prayer.                                 

October 16, 2021
9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

This one-day Lectio Divina introduction presented via Zoom by Cathy Christianson and Tim Goldman is reinforced and expanded through follow-up sessions for each of the next six weeks following the introduction. Specific days and times will be determined by the group during the introductory session.

Suggested donation: $10.
