Centering Prayer 2020
Every Thursday, beginning January 9 thru July 30, 6:00pm-7:00pm
Centering Prayer is a method of contemplative prayer that explores ways of “praying beyond words.” It is not so much about attention, as it is about intention. The source of Centering Prayer is the indwelling of the Spirit and the focus of this prayer is deepening the relationship with God. Its method is listening in silence. In the 6th century, Gregory the Great called it “resting in God.” St. John of the Cross said, “Silence was the first language of God.” Join us for silent prayer on Thursday evenings.
Sister Beth Lynn is a member of the Poor Clare Sisters and longtime teacher and practitioner of Centering Prayer. Guest leaders assist on occasion.
