From Deb Johnston:
“Centering prayer is a Christian form of meditation. The goal of the practice is to find our true selves in Christ and, and who God created us to be. Sometimes through centering prayer, we discover our personality may not be our real identity but just another role we play. We discover more of our relationship to God through letting go in our time of prayer and listening to the first word of God, which was silence. Letting go of any distortions that come to us through the chattering of the mind.
Centering prayer may be done alone or in a group. The purpose of belonging to a group is to be present for each other and honest with others ,as we open ourselves and come to recognize more of who God created us to be.
We meet on Wednesday at 5:30pm-6:30pm. We have 20 minutes of silence together and then read a spiritual passage and discuss the perspectives of Jesus in the teachings.
We also always leave time to discuss with anyone in the group questions or difficulty they may be having in their practice. It is not required to have a group in order to practice centering prayer, but it can be helpful on the journey.
It is also not required you have to be in attendance to every meeting. Some people come and go, leaving a while and then return. Some are very loyal to the weekly meetings.”
