This past weekend, I had the great pleasure of facilitating a retreat centered around silent prayer and the meditative reading of Scripture through lectio divina. It was a joy to spend time with brothers and sisters in Christ who were hungry and thirsty for the presence of God.

Available for download below is the resource I put together for the retreat. Many of the resources came from Contemplative Outreach, the online ministry of Thomas Keating, who, sadly, just passed away last week; as well as from my own writing. I hope it can be helpful for someone out there wanting to grow in their capacity to know God’s presence through prayer and Scripture.
