Spirituality of Knitting

Here's another good one from Monastic Musings A reflection of knitting and the Book of Genesis. Click above to read. What I also enjoyed was the connection to Lectio Divina which I recently posted about in my main blog.

"A Benedictine Approach. Benedictines apply the pattern of lectio divina (much blogged here in recent days) to many things in life. This ancient method of sacred reading is prayerful - not studying a text, but ruminating on it, opening oneself to hear God's voice. Some practice a lectio on life, using the events of the day or the week as the subject for lectio. The four steps are easy to adapt to knitting in a quiet environment"
