Contemplative Prayer Discussion Group

Beginning Tuesday, January 22, at 7 pm, the Rev. Paul Tomlinson will lead this 7-week Contemplative Prayer study based on the book Guarding the Heart by Michael Connell.  The author, a trained and practicing spiritual director, often begins his prayer time with these words:

 

“One with you Dear God, I am united with all creation in this sacred moment of prayer.  I open my heart in faith to You and to Your infinite blessings.”

 

Prayer is a time of opening our heart to our God.  This group will explore a variety of contemplative prayer styles and encourage putting these prayers into practice during the week. 

 

Reading the book is optional but recommended.
