The Spiritual Growth Committee, with the support of Pastor Mark, has asked Alison Falls to lead a workshop series designed to introduce, educate
and lead us on the practice of Christian Meditation. A vast array of meditation practices have been used for thousands of years in the Christian tradition. In Seeds of Contemplation, Thomas Merton wrote: “contemplation is the highest expression of man’s intellectual and spiritual life. It is that life itself, fully
awake, fully active, fully aware that it is alive. It is spiritual wonder. It is spontaneous awe at the sacredness of life.”
We pray that by learning and praying and meditating together, we will enhance our spiritual growth. Tentative plans call for meetings at 4:00 PM on
Tuesdays Oct. 24th, Oct. 31 and Nov. 7th . The first 2 meetings will be held at Firelands and the 3rd at Alison Fall’s home. Folks are invited to attend any or all meetings.
Please consider attending the workshops. We could all use a big dose of “a wonderful peaceful place” these days. Meditation could help you find that place.
