NEW! Contemplative “Introductory” Prayer Group led by Judy Mullins – 8:30 – 10:00 a.m. July 8, July 22, July 29, and August 5. Pre-registration requested, but not required. There is no fee for these four meetings. At the conclusion of the four sessions, the group will develop plans for scheduling or continuing the ongoing group practice of centering prayer.
Centering Prayer is a form of Christian contemplative prayer that deepens one’s capacity to abide in a state of what ancient practitioners called “attention of the heart.” Once you get the “hang of it,” attention of the heart allows you to be fully present to God, while at the same time fully present to the situation at hand. One can think of it as a practice that, over time, anchors you in the peace of Christ, so that without being conscious of it, you discover you are operating from a deeper, calmer, more mindful and more joyful state.
