Bringing it home: a hermeneutic phenomenological study
Author

Abstract
Central to this thesis is a hermeneutic phenomenological, qualitative inquiry of the essence of the lived experience of teenagers doing Lectio Divina with their parents at home. It was anticipated that participating teenagers would demonstrate a willingness to discuss matters of faith, engage in theological reflection, find comfort and enjoyment in doing Lectio Divina with their parents, and show interest in continued spiritual practices at home. The concluding chapter offers reflections, learnings, recommendations and questions pertaining specifically to an ongoing partnership between parent, pastor and congregation as well as the usefulness of hermeneutic phenomenology for pastoral and practical theology.
