September 9, 2019 Highland Park United Methodist Church will begin a church wide Bible reading plan of the Gospel of Mark. Monday through Friday, you are invited to read a portion of Mark, and this podcast offers you the opportunity to enter into a "divine reading" of the text.
Lectio Divina is a spiritual discipline, or spiritual practice, of divine reading. It is an opportunity to hear the text multiple times, allowing you to engage the text not only with your mind, but with the fullness of your being. You hear it, you hear it again, and all the while your ruminate on it.
Today's episode is an introduction to the series. We talk about why we chose lectio divina, why we chose the title "Ruminate This," and why we believe this will be a beneficial spiritual practice for you.
Blessings to you as you journey this spiritual practice.

Elizabeth does not take no for an answer. She's determined, driven, and does not give up. If you need someone in your corner, I'd suggest Elizabeth. She goes to bat for the things and people she believes in, and she's notorious for getting things done. She's loud but listens well. She's sarcastic but supportive, confident but willing to learn. Elizabeth is a pastor, preacher, teacher and in her spare time a wife and mother to three kids. She loves to share a good meal, but be forewarned, she'll definitely be late.
He brings his own french press coffee with him wherever he goes, but happily shares it with anyone who needs a pick me up. His dreads have a power all their own. He'll call you on your BS, but in a way that makes you grateful for his wisdom. He's the guy you want to hang out with over any kind of beverage. His favorite non-holiday is Pentecost, and the Holy Spirit is his jam. He's a pastor, a wise-man, a husband, a father of two girls, a caffeine addict, a native Missourian, and an advocate for justice. He hates wearing shoes.
