A-09 Youth Engaging Scripture: Listening to God’s Voice
Saint Ambrose said, “When I am reading divine Scripture, God walks again in the earthly Paradise” (St. Ambrose, Epistle 49,3). This workshop will explore exciting ways that adults can help teens gain meaningful insights into the Word of God by using traditional tools of the Church such as lectio divina. It is in the Bible that we can come to listen and hear the voice of God in new ways in our life today.
