Scripture Listening

Eugene Peterson drew my attention in one of his writings (possibly from his pastoral theology series) that the Scriptures are meant to be heard. There’s a “personal encounter” somehow when one reads aloud and another listens which is diffirent when one sits alone and reads a passage silently. One of the comments at the “Sabbath Retreat” is when we were doing LECTIO DIVINA, as beginners they found it easier when another person was reading and they just “restfully” listened.

We’re reading Genesis together as a church, I decided to listen for a change. Thanks to Bible Gateway for New International Version (NIV) Audio Bible
