Join us for a Centering Prayer Workshop!
The pandemic has made connection with others challenging, and it can even be a struggle to connect with God. To provide a way to connect on a deeper level with God and each other, the Board of Spiritual Growth is offering an introduction to Christian meditation called Centering Prayer, a prayer method that invites us into the experience of God’s presence within us. This Zoom workshop takes place Saturday, November 7, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (with ample breaks) and includes six one-hour follow-up sessions. Whether you’re a beginner, are out of practice, or have a current prayer practice, this workshop can provide a way to deepen your relationship with God, and to do it along with fellow Plymouth members, with the opportunity for an ongoing weekly prayer group.
Centering Prayer helps us:
- Enhance our ability to “let go and let God.”
- Develop a nonjudgmental attitude of ourselves and others.
- Grow in self-knowledge.
- Develop an emerging capacity to listen and to serve others.
- Nurture our ability to live in the present moment.
Workshop leaders are Rev. Paul Witmer, a minister of over 30 years and trained Spiritual Director who has extensive experience teaching contemplative practices, leading retreats, and working with folks in twelve-step recovery, and Tim Goldman, a Centering Prayer instructor commissioned by Contemplative Outreach, Ltd., who has practiced Centering Prayer and Lectio Divina for more than 20 years.
Program costs are funded by the Board of Spiritual Growth and participation is limited to 30.
