  1. Hi Todd … I just want to thank you for this podcast. I am a Presbyterian CRE serving a church parttime, and occasionally teach the basics of lectio divina to others. You are part of my sermon prep and source of my own spiritual discipline when I need to “hear” scripture and not just read commentaries about scripture. Blessings on this ministry you do! (FYI: at the present time I follow the Narrative Lectionary and during the summer do studies on other books–this summer it’s James! So, I am often dipping into your archives rather than the current week, but all still relevant!)


    1. Dear Deb,
      I was so pleased to get your note. Thank you for taking the time to write! That desire to hear the text, not just read it, is what got me started on this project in the first place — back in 2008. When I try to do lectio divina by myself by reading it to myself, I seem to not relax into it very well. But I do find myself easily doing lectio when someone else reads the text and guides me through the process. Back in 2008, I did some research to see if anyone else was guiding folks in lectio online and found no one was doing it weekly. So I thought I’d experiment and started my podcast. These days there are some other options out there but I think my podcast, my voice, has a unique place in the mix. Thank you again, Deb, for writing. Hope to hear from you again sometime!
      Deepest Peace of Christ with You,
