We hope to create experiential opportunities for noticing how God is personally and communally relevant and moving in every little and large bit of our lives, not only giving us life, but living it with and in us!
Be Still: Practicing Meditation in Our busy lives | wednesdays at 6:30 pm | rm 206
Are you feeling burnt out, empty, like you have nothing left to give? Do you feel the Fruits of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control) are way out of your reach? Or, do you have a deep longing for more of God in your life? In any case, you may be very surprised at how meditation can meet these needs and fill your soul.
Each Wednesday that we meet, we will introduce a different contemplative/meditative prayer practice and then actively practice it. Meditation is practicing listening to God intimately. You will probably find one or two prayer practices that you prefer over the others. It will be different for everyone. Some of the prayer practices you will be introduced to are lectio divina, centering prayer, guided meditation, the Examen, the Jesus prayer, etc. Each is very simple, yet very powerful
During this Summer of Prayer, come experience the other side of the dialogue - listening to what God has to say to you.
Meet with us at 6:30 on Wednesday nights (except for Book Club nights) in Room 206. No experience necessary.
