Centering Prayer Pre-Lenten Morning: “I Will Lead Her Into the Desert” – Via Zoom

February 13, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Therefore, I will now allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak tenderly to her. From there I will give her vineyards, and make the Valley of Achor a door of hope. There she shall respond as in the days of her youth, as at the time when she came out of the land of Egypt.
―Hosea 2:14

Lent offers us one of those rare times to let go and make a space for God. Our common participation in this ritual can open us more deeply to the sacredness of the moment, ourselves, and our world. Our prayer morning is an opportunity to cease all activities and ponder our personal aim for this Lenten season. We will have two sessions of Centering Prayer, Lectio Divina, and time for community sharing. Please come join us for contemplative fellowship, as we open ourselves together to be a chalice for God’s love.

Marty Badgett has co-led extended Centering Prayer retreats for many years, and hosted many one-day contemplative prayer days in Berkeley California and in Austin Texas. Marty is a commissioned Centering Prayer presenter, and is the coordinator for the Northwest San Francisco Bay Area.

Prayer Mornings are a new part of the ongoing Centering Prayer program at Mercy Center Burlingame, in hopes of deepening our community relationships and our Centering Prayer practice.

A $20 donation is suggested to support the program; however, any donation you are able to contribute is gratefully accepted. Your presence is most important.

Times for the morning retreat are Pacific Standard Time (PST).
