Weekly Activity: Lectio Divina (altered)

Read “Birthing a New Way” by Kelly Ann Hall each a day this week meditating on the following questions. You may need to read the poem multiple times.

Monday: What words or phrases stand out to me? What does the text say that everyone should understand?

Tuesday: What does this text say to me, today about surrender or “birth a new way”?

Wednesday: What do I want to say to God in response? What questions do I have?

Thursday: What is God trying to tell me? What word do I feel God is writing on my heart?

Friday: What needs to change in my life to surrender or “birth a new way”? What actions can I take to become more interdependent with God?
