What Is Lectio Divina?

Lectio Divina Chapels at Multnomah are, simply, times of focused and prayerful attention to short passages of scripture.  This is done in small groups of 4 to 6. The point is to slow down, to sit quietly, and to consider God’s Word, praying for insight and a willing spirit to hear and obey.  Repeated readings of the short passage and prayerful consideration of the text give students an opportunity for prolonged exposure to a passage of scripture, placing themselves under the authority of God’s Word and to consider God’s will for their lives that day.

Giving Tuesday

Forget Black Friday & Cyber Monday

Thanksgiving kicks off a busy season. The sales of Black Friday have been an American tradition for many, many years. Recently, the addition of Cyber Monday has added to the consumerism mindset - only with an online shopping flavor. Maybe this year we could make a difference by trying something different when Tuesday, November 27th rolls around? Read the rest of this entry »

On the eve of a hotly contested Presidential Election vote many people are prognosticating on how momentous it all is. We've even heard some pundits call it the "most important decision in our lifetimes." We're skeptical of such lofty sentiments and wondered if there are other decisions that actually matter more. We wondered if important decisions are the sum total of a series of better, "smaller" decisions.

A Season of Thanks

“Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him” Psalm 34:8

Autumn is in full swing here in the Pacific Northwest! Signs of fall are evident everywhere—the freshness in the crisp cool air, the smell of fires, warm and vibrantly colored leaves beginning to fall and cover the ground. It’s that time of year again when thoughts are naturally turned towards feelings of nostalgia, holiday memories and family traditions. I love this time of year for these reasons, as well as for the opportunity to consider a season of gratitude. Read the rest of this entry »
