Be still and know that I am God.
Psalm 46:10

The intent of Contemplative Outreach is
to foster the process of transformation in Christ in one another
through the practice of Centering Prayer.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul,
and with all your strength, and with all your mind;
and your neighbor as yourself.
Luke 10:27

There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit;
there are different forms of service but the same Lord;
there are different workings but the same God
who produces all of them in everyone.
I Corinthians 12:4-7

Contemplative Outreach is an evolving community with an expanding vision and deepening practice, serving the changing needs of Christian contemplatives. As members of this evolving community we are responsible to foster and transmit the Vision of Contemplative Outreach. We fulfill our Vision through attraction to the Centering Prayer practice not by proselytizing. The gift of contemplative practice enables us to bring an attitude of humility, listening and service to our daily activities.
