Meditation is not new to the Christian experience.
However, many Christians have lost touch with this
long tradition of contemplative prayer.
‘Be still and know I am God’ (Psalm
It is not easy for us to ‘be still’.
Another translation says, ‘Pause
a while’. Through
the regular discipline of physical silence and stillness
in meditation, and the simple repetition of a word
– a mantra – God’s mysterious presence
within us is given space to become more a reality.
In time this begins to influence the shape, purpose
and meaning of our ordinary life. This ‘work’ gradually
frees us from the unrelenting demands of the ego
and the incessant chatter of the mind. Our mind and
heart are united in a way that clarifies vision and
opens our heart to experience more deeply the Source
of all Love that is within.
Christian Meditation is 7.30 pm to approx 8.15 pm
every Tuesday (except during January). It begins
with a 10 – 15 minute reflection followed by
25 minutes of silent meditation.
