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 normally 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.

During the COVID-19 pandemic when we do not gather physically, we are meeting virtually. If you would like to join the weekly online group, or would like more information, please contact Pastor Martin Malina (prmartinmalina@gmail.com).
