Forming Intentional Disciples by Sherry Weddell
& Centering Prayer Workshop
Rebuilt by Michael White & Tom Corcoran
Fr. Robert Sipe will be here at Nativity of Our Lord on Saturday, March 15, from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm to present a workshop on Centering Prayer.
Centering Prayer is a method of personal silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of inner peace, in which we experience God's presence within us.
Centering Prayer is not meant to replace other kinds of prayer. Rather, it adds depth of meaning to all prayer. Centering Prayer emphasizes prayer as a personal relationship with God and as a movement beyond conversation to deeper intimacy with Christ. The focus of Centering Prayer is the deepening of our relationship with the living Christ.
Fr. Sipe has been presenting and teaching about Centering Prayer for the last ten years. He has practiced under the direction of Fr. Thomas Keating. Fr. Keating was a central figure in the initiation of the Centering Prayer movement. Father Thomas Keating is a founding member and the spiritual guide of Contemplative Outreach, LTD.
Prayer is one of the three elements of our spiritual life that we are asked to pay attention to during Lent. This workshop will give us new tools for our Lenten journey.
