Contemplative Prayer Discussion Group

The Rev. Paul Tomlinson will lead this 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.
