INTENTIONAL PRAYER TIME

Intentional Prayer Time

 

 

     

Are you pondering a way to deepen your relationship with God? Is it your intent to find time for prayer on a regular basis? Are you seeking a community where you share values?

 

If in your heart you have an affirmative response to any of these questions, we invite you to join our community for an hour of prayer weekly. We meet every Tuesday morning and begin with a 30 minute period of Centering Prayer followed by Sacred Reading of Scripture (Lectio Divina). If you are not familiar with Centering Prayer come 15 or 20 minutes early and we will introduce you to the prayer.

 

All are welcome.

GUARD OF THE HEART

                          
   

“One practice to bring the effects of contemplative prayer into daily life is traditionally known as “Guard of the Heart.” This consists of letting go of every emotional disturbance as it arises and before we start thinking about it. This method is more sophisticated than dismantling the emotional programs for happiness because it deals with the whole of life. It expresses our ongoing intention to be with God in the present moment and sustains it.” (Fr. Thomas Keating, 2017)

 

This class will teach the practice of “Guard of the Heart” and how it compliments our Centering Prayer, and the practices of the Welcoming Prayer and the Active Prayer Phrase. We will learn the three ways any afflictive thought or emotional disturbance can be instantly released as it arises. Join us for this enriching and deepening complementary practice.

GOD IS LOVE

                          
   

God is Love video series is Fr. Thomas Keating's latest in the Spiritual Journey Series. It is a masterful overview of how we can grow and deepen our relationship with God and how God manifests through us. The presentations both motivate and inspire us to be to be faithful to the Centering Prayer practice. Thomas also shares how God invites us to draw closer to Him and to allow God to transform us through Centering Prayer.

 

This is a "must see series”, especially for those who have been doing the practice for a period of time.

The Shack

The Shack is a 2017 American psychological drama film directed by Stuart Hazeldine and written by John Fusco, based on the 2007 novel of the same name by William P. Young. The film stars Sam Worthington, Octavia Spencer, Graham Greene, Radha Mitchell, Alice Braga and Tim McGraw.

 

Mackenzie ("Mack") Phillips suffered horrific abuse as a child at the hands of his drunken father. As an adult he has a bountiful life with his wife, Nan, and their three children, Kate, Josh and Missy. Mack's life is shattered, however, when their youngest child Missy disappears during a camping trip while he is saving Kate and Josh during a canoeing accident.

 

The police determine Missy is the victim of a serial killer after finding her torn dress and blood in a vacant cabin. The tragedy derails Mack's faith and life until he receives a mysterious telegram signed "Papa" (which is Nan's name for God) inviting him to come to the cabin. Reluctantly accepting, Mack travels there and is overcome with rage and suicidal thoughts, until he meets a mysterious trio of strangers who seek to help him understand, heal and forgive.
