Drop-In: Christian Contemplative Prayer & Reflection

June 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

| Free

The goal of this ongoing program is to offer sacred space where, in silence and in reflection, God may meet us just where we are. We offer the possibility of becoming a supportive ecumenical community of Christian meditators who will encourage daily contemplative prayer in our own homes. Each session will begin with a short contemplative service and move to silent Christian meditation. Simple instruction will be offered. New and more experienced meditators are whole-heartedly welcomed.

We’d love to know you’re coming (RSVP), but feel free to just drop-in!
