Lectio Divina:  This is just a Latin term for an old monastic way of reading sacred literature.  Richard Rohr describes it this way:  With the first reading, listen with your heart’s ear for a phrase or word that stands out for you. During the second reading, reflect on what touches you, perhaps speaking that response aloud or writing in a journal. Third, respond with a prayer or expression of what you have experienced and what it calls you to. Fourth, rest in silence after the reading. 

Enuma Elish:  The Babylonian creation myth.

Imago Dei:  People in the image of god. Reflecting the beauty of creation back to him.
