Contemplative Prayer @ St. James Lutheran Church
Apr 6 @ 9:30 am – 11:00 am

 

prayer-picture

NOTE: Contemplative Prayer takes a summer break in August!
No Saturday morning prayer/labyrinth until September. (That means you can “Be Still and Know” without driving to St. James!) Notice when there is a blanket of silence around you and be grateful. Walk the labyrinth on your own. It is wonderfully quiet and peaceful in the morning on the weekends.

Contemplative Prayer at St. James meets twice a month.  Weather permitting, we will include a time of walking meditation with the new labyrinth as part of the morning.

Anyone interested in contemplative listening to God is invited to join us. We spend time in silence, in reading sacred texts, and praying for the world, each other and ourselves.
