We meet at ChancesR restaurant in College Square (corner Baseline & Woodroffe). Men from Julian of Norwich Anglican Church and City View United Church also attend and are invited. See you then!

Christian Meditation
Dec 5 @ 5:00 pm – 5:45 pm

Following the Christian Meditation tradition of contemplative prayer, we gather to sit in silence and stillness for twenty minutes, focusing on a prayer word and repeating it interiorly and faithfully, as we enter the prayer of Jesus Christ. We also listen to a recording by teachers in this tradition (eg. John Main, Laurence Freeman), and reflect together briefly on this practice of prayer and our understanding of it. This time together provides an oasis of calm and concentration in a busy life of distraction and rapid mobility.

Advent mid-week conversation
