Making the Familiar Strange
Lectio Divina, Latin for “Divine Reading”, is a Western Christian practice of scriptural reading, meditation and prayer. Traditionally, Lectio Divina has four separate steps: read; meditate; pray; contemplate. Sandra Squires, a member of St. Augustine of Canterbury Episcopal Church, will walk us through the steps and how the practice can be used in other faith traditions.
Making the Familiar Strange is an opportunity for interfaith dialogue that inspires people of different religious and nonreligious backgrounds to read the same text together. Rather than providing answers, creating arguments, or shutting down conversation, Making the Familiar Strange gives attendees an opportunity to investigate and share different perspectives on the same texts.
While not required, the program is best if you have access to the stories, which can be through a physical copy or online copy of a Bible, Tanakh, and/or Quran.
Tri-Faith Initiative events are recorded and archived on our YouTube Channel.
