Introduction to Centering Prayer

March 25, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm


“Be still and know that I am God.”
– Psalm 46:10

Centering Prayer is a receptive, deep method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of the experience of God’s presence within us. It presents ancient Christian teachings in an updated form. Centering Prayer is not meant to replace other kinds of prayer; rather it casts new light on them. This method of prayer is a movement beyond conversation with Christ to communion with Christ. Through the regular practice of Centering Prayer, many people discover the fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, self-control.

The workshop will introduce the four guidelines of Centering Prayer and will include two 20 minute silent Centering Prayer sessions. The teachings are based on Father Thomas Keating’s book, Open Mind, Open Heart. Follow up materials and resources will be provided. A donation is suggested for the presenters traveling expenses.

The co-presenters are the Reverends Jackie Falk and John Keller.
For more information and to RSVP contact, Laura Petrie at petriedish57@gmail.com

Please note there is also a Centering Prayer group in person on Sundays @ 5:00 p.m. Eastern time – same location, Messiah Lutheran Church.  Please email Laura Petrie if interested in attending, petriedish57@gmail.com
