Show Notes

Shiloh and Riley talk about the Sermon on the Mount from a variety of perspectives. When we take a primary or solely rationalist approach to scripture, we often unintentionally end up "rationalizing away" the most difficult parts of the Sermon on the Mount that don't seem possible to follow. By taking a more contemplative approach to scripture, is there a way of allowing the scriptures to open up to us in a new way in giving us access to being with God? Riley and Shiloh express some initial thoughts on Lectio Divina and how that has changed their own relationship to the Lord through the scriptures and especially the Sermon on the Mount. We hope you enjoy!
