Room For The Inner Way

"Centering Prayer: A Lenten Practice,” continues to meet Sunday, April 2 and 9, from 10:35 a.m. to 10:55 a.m. in the Prayer Room.

Facilitated by Lori Sweet and Elizabeth Terry, these sessions invite participants to experience a simple method, as described by the Cynthia Bourgeault, an Episcopal priest, to explore surrendering to God and opening to God’s transformative power — what Cynthia has called “interior awakening.”

We encourage participants to attend our group prayer session each week, if possible, and to practice centering prayer daily at home, although this is not a requirement to attend Sundays. An excellent resource and support for this practice is the book Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening, by Cynthia Bourgeault.

Both Lori and Elizabeth are happy to answer any questions that you may have regarding this practice.
