Contemplative Prayer is a time to come together to participate in the peace of Spirit.

Thursdays at 11:00 a.m.

As the Father of Contemplative Prayer, Thomas Keating states: “Prayer is considered to be the pure gift of God. It is the opening of mind and heart – our whole being – to God, the Ultimate Mystery, beyond thoughts, words, and emotions.”

Contemplative prayer is a way of making oneself aware of the presence of God, who is always there.  This type of prayer tends to be uniting and quite powerful for many in a group setting.  True contemplative prayer leads to the experience of God within, which silences other voices that deny our human dignity and a sense of peace and freedom.  The purpose of contemplative prayer is to take us deep within in order to rest in God and become more aware of God’s transforming love for us.

The Contemplative Prayer group at First Congregational Church meets on Thursdays at 11 a.m. for one hour via zoom. Everyone is welcome to join us. Please check the Daily All Church Emails for the zoom link. If you are not receiving the daily emails or would like the link sent directly to you, please contact the church office, 541-345-8741.
