You are invited to join us for an hour of personal spiritual practice every Monday evening at 6:00 PM at the church.
Meditation is consistent with the prayerful traditions of Anglican worship. Meditation in this context is about becoming empty, not filling ones head with more great ideas to entertain the ego, just being silent, empty, open and receptive to the presence of Christ among us.
Christians have traditionally used a prayer phrase to help keep them focused, attentive and open to the presence of Christ. The phrase we encourage here (though some meditators among us use other phrases) has a long history in the Orthodox Church and is known as The Jesus Prayer or The Prayer of the Heart. In its short form it simply says “Lord Jesus have mercy on me (us)”.
This prayer phrase is repeated over and over, one must find one’s own rhythm, and it serves to keep us focused on the presence of Christ among us and to bring the mind back from being caught up in itself and remain simply open and receptive.
Beginners are welcome. Chairs and cushions are available.
