One of the foundational practices during Lent is prayer and one way to experience it is through meditation. When we pause, breathe deeply, and quiet our minds from the many thoughts we carry with us through our day, we can become present to prayer and to God’s presence in our lives.
Barbara Brown Taylor in her book “An Altar in the World” notes the difference between prayer and prayers; prayers for instance, may be said in community on Sunday or when we rise to greet the morning. Prayer, she adds, is more than saying set prayers at set times: “…It is waking up to the presence of God no matter where you are or what you are doing….When you are able to give yourself wholly to the moment you are in, then you are in prayer….God is happening, and you are in The Midst.”
Please join us to practice prayer on Tuesday mornings in the reception room from 9:30 – 10:30am.
Come as you are able, just as you are….
