Scripture Conversation Starter Deck
From Aisling at The Good Portion Co,
This Scripture conversation deck is inspired by several things:
1.The ancient and beautiful practice of Lectio Divina – a way of praying with scripture that involves reading, re-reading, pondering what strikes your heart, and praying with God about these words.
2.St. Ignatius’ practice of imaginative prayer – where we take a Gospel story or passage and imaginatively enter into the setting, prayerfully experience the story unfolding, exploring what God wants to speak to us there.
3.My experience with the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd – a marvelous method of catechesis, informed by Maria Montessori’s educational philosophy, immersing children in the life and beauty of the Church through Scripture, Liturgy, and Tradition. I hope to help bring these treasured practices, of praying with and living into the Word of God, into your family’s life!
(I recommend printing this file on quality, heavyweight cardstock and cutting with a paper cutter.)”
