  1. Beautiful lectio on Romans 12, my first real experience in adult bible study many years ago! My spirit was quickened this morning, reading and re-reading verse 6 (The Message), “…each part gets its meaning from the body as a whole…”. What a statement for the corporate nature of the church…. Thank you, Todd

  2. I haven’t sat with one of your lectio podcasts for a few weeks, Todd ~ what a smile filled me when you mentioned our contemplative walk and opened with that precious St Francis poem! I have no doubt that many of the listeners in your lectio community know well that sensation of deep joy and presence of the divine when we allow our busy minds to quiet and simply BE with any element of nature. Sitting with Paul’s call to “ be transformed by the renewing of your mind “ I found my imagination bringing me to the meadow at the close of our contemplative walk. How effortlessly i feel my mind “renewed” when I awaken the sounds and smells and touch and images of that sacred space. Thank you for this gift today. 🌱
