Drop-In: Christian Meditation

June 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

| Free

Heavenly Father, open our hearts to the silent presence of the spirit of your Son. Lead us into that mysterious silence where your love is revealed to all who call …Come, Lord Jesus.

Silence means letting of thoughts. Stillness means letting go of desire. Simplicity means letting of self-analysis. (Simple isn’t easy).

We meditate in order to take the attention off ourselves. Jesus said: “Leave self behind”. In the Christian tradition, contemplation is seen as a grace and as a reciprocal work of love. Not surprisingly, then, if we find we become more loving people as a result of meditating this will express itself in our relationships, our works and our sense of service especially to those in any kind of need.

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