Join us for a study of Prayer and Contemplative Spirituality beginning April 19. The class, facilitated by Pastor Liz Leavitt, will ask questions such as: What is prayer? What is its purpose? Why do we pray and how? Do we use words? Or silence? Do we sit and listen? Or use our bodies? We’ll meet for seven weeks to explore the meaning of prayer, consider (and try out!) different prayer practices, and learn about the tradition of Christian contemplation with a specific focus on centering prayer. We’ll utilize Into the Silent Land: A Guide to the Christian Practice of Contemplation by Marin Laird as our guide, but will also draw from other sources. So please pick up a copy by our second class, Sunday, April 26.
