One of the foundational practices during Lent is prayer and when we meditate, we can become present to prayer – and to God’s presence in our lives.
I have often associated a second Lenten practice, that of fasting, with food; abstaining from a meal or favorite food in order to make space for God, to reflect and to pray. But fasting can also be about giving up concerns and material things, each of which can distract us from being present to God; how about fasting from impatience? Or worry? Or fasting from purchases that seem like necessities but may, in fact, just add to our clutter?
The spiritual practice of meditation is a way to clear out those distractions and clutter that keep us from noticing God’s presence in our lives. Please join us and learn how – on Tuesday mornings in the Reception Room from 9:30 – 10:30am.
Come as you are able, just as you are….Questions?
