About Audio Lectio

Audio Lectio is a a weekly recording of a guided meditation using the gospel reading from the lectionary. We are using a form of lectio divina for the structure.

What’s Lectio Divina? Lectio divina is a slow, meditative reading and reflection on a passage of scripture. Rather than processing the scripture intellectually, you’re invited to let the words and images connect your heart with God’s heart.

What’s the Lectionary? “A lectionary is collection of readings or selections from the Scriptures, arranged and intended for proclamation during worship of the people of God.” (The Revised Common Lectionary, p. 9. Nashville: Abingdon, 1992.) This collection of readings from scriptures is used by pastors and church leaders in the planning of worship, sermons, and daily meditation. We use the Revised Common Lectionary which is used by many Protestant denominations around the world. It was created by the Consultation on Common Texts in 1992. (Read more about the Revised Common Lectionary.) Each week, the lectionary lists four readings. The Revised Common Lectionary uses a three year cycle. Each year starts with Advent, the beginning of the church year.

What Bible are you using for the readings? We’re using the Common English Bible. Copyright © 2010 Common English Bible. Used by permission. http://www.CommonEnglishBible.com.

Audio Lectio recordings before August, 2011 feature the New Revised Standard Version of the Bible. New Revised Standard Version Bible, copyright © 1989 National Council of the Churches of Christ in the United States of America. Used by permission. All rights reserved.
