UUs long ago stopped looking to the Christian Bible as a source of insight or inspiration, and for good reason. There is much about this text that is confused, irrelevant to our lives today, or just plain wrong. But in spite of these barriers it can be a wonderful source for lectio divina (divine reading), if approached with the right spirit.
