Centering Prayer is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, prayer in which we experience God’s presence within us.  This method of prayer is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.

This class provides an opportunity to learn about Centering Prayer or to renew and deepen your practice – to be with God beyond concepts, words and images; listening with “the ear of the heart”. In addition to this Class, at no additional cost, continuing sessions are offered to help you establish and deepen a daily practice. More information will be provided when you register.

As we enter the Season of Lent, this is offered three days after Ash Wednesday. Come to this historic church which was established in 1815 for the use of all denominations as Charlotte’s Town Church.

The workshop will be presented by The Rev. Dr. Deborah Conner and The Rev. Dr. Richard Little. Dr. Conner is the Coordinator of Contemplative Outreach of Piedmont NC and the Pastor for Congregational Care at Myers Park Presbyterian Church. Dr. Little is a retired Lutheran Pastor who last served as the Senior Pastor of Advent Lutheran Church. Both facilitate Weekly Centering Prayer Groups.

All are welcome to attend.

Registration will open soon.
