Lenten Series Continues Through April 10
Father Ben continues to lead our 2019 Lenten mid-week series, "Praying the Presence of God: A Guide to Christian Meditation and Contemplation.” The series is an exploration of two ancient Christian prayer practices, contemplation and meditation. Each practice offers a powerful way to deepen your connection with God, and many people have found these prayer techniques to be absolutely life-changing.
The classes include descriptions of each practice and its history, and offer some suggestions for how to include it in your daily life. Father Ben will also discuss the neglected practice of “discernment of spirits” and its use in prayer and everyday life. If you have ever tried centering prayer (a form of contemplation) or lectio divina (a form of meditation) and want to learn more, this class is for you! All are welcome to attend. Feel free to come for the final three weeks even if you’ve missed the first couple of sessions!
Each session begins with pizza at 6:00 p.m., followed by the evening’s program, which will end
by 8:00 p.m.
The schedule for the remaining weeks of the series is as follows:
Week III (3/27):
Contemplation – Silent Watchfulness
Week IV (4/3):
Discernment of Spirits – What to Do With Confusing Thoughts
Week V (4/10):
