What if life didn’t have to be so unrelenting. So busy. So rushed all the time? What if you could feel free from the pressure to accomplish the next thing, and the next thing, and the next thing? What if the constant input from everywhere were to be put on pause long enough for you to explore your own thoughts–to get centered on your own needs and desires? And then, only then, move forward from a place of purpose and intention?
Contemplative Prayer is our attempt to create such a time and space in the context of our church community. An hour of sacred space to pause, think, listen, pray. It’s a quiet prayer circle, communal meditation time, with gentle suggestions and prayer prompts from a purposeful leader. We’re a small group of people, being quiet and still, together.
