Contemplative Prayer Group
Our own Grace Church is hosting an ongoing Contemplative Prayer Group in collaboration with members of Christ Church Cathedral every other Tuesday evening. Sessions will be an hour and a half in length, from 7:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. Please join us for meditation, centering prayer, personal experiences on the path into the silent land of contemplation, and lively discussions about the writings of ancient and modern contemplatives and mystics from the Desert Fathers to Saint Benedict, Meister Ekhart, Thomas Merton and others. It is recommended that participants purchase and read Into the Silent Land: A Guide to the Christian Practice of Contemplation by Martin Laird, available from Amazon for around $12. For more information please contact Sarah Kieffer at email@example.com.
