Centering Prayer Class Offered Wednesday Evenings in June
Each Wednesday in June, 6:30- 7:45 pm, join Rev. Andrea Andress and Kathy Kramer-Howe in H1 as they lead a new Centering Prayer class. This method of silent prayer helps prepare us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer and allows us to experience God’s presence within us. The program encourages a daily prayer practice (one of the traits of a disciple) and provides participants with the tools to establish this new practice. Each class combines teaching and discussion, a video and prayer practice. Each class stands alone, but the more practice you have, the greater the results. There is no cost, but registration is helpful. Contact Rev. Andrea Andress, firstname.lastname@example.org, to register or for more information.

Lunch Conversations Move to Wednesdays and G2 (Library) June 10
The first Thursday, June 4 in June, join us for our last discussion on the Enneagram in G2 (not H1), then join us on Wednesdays in June, 12-1:15 pm in G2 as we discuss Meister Eckhart’s contributions to our thought/theology in understanding creation, meditation and the historical Jesus in today’s world. Rev. Andrea Andress will be using the book, Meister Eckhart: A Mystic Warrior for Our Times by Matthew Fox. You do not need to read the book to attend the class. Meister Eckhart lived in the 13th century, but his teachings on ecology, gender justice, artistic creativity, and social/economic advocacy put him ahead of his time. Bring your lunch to G2:
- Wednesday, June 10 – Christ of the Cosmos: Meister Eckhart meets Teilhard de Chardin and Thomas Berry
- Wednesday, June 17 – Meister Eckhart meets Buddhism via Thich Nhat Hanh
- Wednesday, June 24 – The Historical Jesus: Meister Eckhart meets Marcus Borg, Bruce Chilton and John Dominic Crossan
