Program On Introduction To Centering Prayer Offered March 28

Tuesday, February 25, 2020

Introduction to Centering Prayer, led by Dr. Barbara Ray a certified Centering Prayer leader, will be offered at Saint Alban’s Episcopal Church on Saturday, March 28, from 9:30 a.m.-1:45.  The church is at 7514 Hixson Pike in Hixson.

Contemplative Outreach says Centering Prayer is a receptive method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, prayer in which we experience God’s presence within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than consciousness itself. This method of prayer is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.  

Centering Prayer is not meant to replace other kinds of prayer. Rather, it adds depth of meaning to all prayer and facilitates the movement from more active modes of prayer – verbal, mental or affective prayer – into a receptive prayer of resting in God. Centering Prayer emphasizes prayer as a personal relationship with God and as a movement beyond conversation with Christ to communion with Christ.

A $30 registration fee includes snacks and introductory materials. Six weekly sessions are included at no additional cost and will begin on Thursday, April 2, through May 7.

For information or to register contact Kitty Cress at 842-5072, kittycress@gmail.com or  Dean Cress at (215) 205-3064, deanecress@gmail.com.
