During Lent, beginning a week from Sunday (March 9), at Grace Episcopal Church, 20 Belvoir Ave., there will be an in-depth introduction to the spiritual practice of centering prayer. They will utilize an audio presentation entitled “Healing our Violence through the Journey of Centering Prayer.” They will listen to Father Thomas Keating and Father Richard Rohr, who will guide listeners on this journey to develop a deeper, more direct, relationship with God. Father Keating’s “Divine Therapy,” draws attention to the true self/false self distinction and how that affects behavior and relationships.
Rebecca Williams, Grace’s own centering prayer group leader, will be present. Thomas Keating’s Open Mind Open Heart will be used as a source book.
