How are you approaching the new year? Do you hope to be more centered, more grounded, more connected and aware of God’s presence? Perhaps contemplative practices and prayer may be avenues you might explore! You may be surprised by what is included as “contemplative” and as “prayer.”
Join us on Sunday, January 24th on a live Zoom to discuss contemplative practices and prayer and how they have nurtured some members of our Adult Education & Spiritual Formation Team. This opportunity will be led by Rev. Joann H Lee, Elder Kathy Bear, Elder Doug Person, and Deacon Tosca Lee – not because we are experts, but because we are your co-partners in learning and praying together!
“What I have discovered in my fidelity to interior silence is that contemplative prayer is not so much my finding God, but more my allowing God to find me: allowing Wisdom to direct my heart, giving me the strength to avoid manipulating others and controlling life. The graces of contemplative prayer teach me how to prepare a dwelling place for Wisdom to rest within.” – Spirituality, Contemplation & Transformation – Writings on Centering Prayer
