The Mindfulness of Stained Glass

In our most recent 2-hour onsite retreat, we used Lectio Divina as a meditation tool. “In Lectio Divina, the chosen spiritual text is read four times in total, giving an opportunity to think deeply about it and respond thoughtfully. When we practice Lectio Divina, we can imagine we’re actually involved in the events of Scripture — for example, hearing God’s words to the Israelites in the desert. It’s an intensely personal experience.” An explanation included the word stained glass, which was the word that shimmered for me.

Metallic forms
keep blown glass in shape
Translucent colors
decipher light
into shapes
wondrous and magical
Teaching us things
only our hearts may know
