Wondrous Encounters: Scripture for Lent
In this brief but powerful teaching, Father Richard Rohr presents the essence of his book, Wondrous Encounters: Scripture for Lent.
This journey, through the 40 days of Lent, is more than an offering of simple daily meditations, although they are that as well.
In Father Richard’s words, he hopes these pages provide “a Lenten-based encounter with the Bible itself; not just ‘what’ is in the Bible, but more ‘how’ we can interpret the Scriptures for ourselves, and grow through these parallel situations today."
Hear how Richard views the essence of sacred Scripture, and how a full reading leads us to conversion and inner transformation. The implications he presents show us how our daily lives can be changed toward greater fulfilment and deep healing.
This programme ends with a session where the participants asked some very clear questions, which gave Richard the opportunity to deepen his reflection on daily conversations with Scripture, fundamentalism, the true meaning of penance, and others.
