Midweek November 30 2016

Theologian, Henri Nouwen, often talks about how God’s love unites us. He says that all the great Christian mystics have been attempting to say that to us over the centuries. He writes that: “All of them, however, spoke with a knowledge that came to them not through intellectual arguments but through contemplative prayer. The Spirit of Jesus allowed them to see the heart of God, the heart of the universe, and their own hearts as one.”

These unique, spiritual writers spoke with a knowledge that came through contemplative prayer. What is that? Contemplative prayer involves a great deal of listening rather than speaking, silence rather than noise. It is NOT a method of prayer most of use often enough. I am pleased to tell you that each one of our Advent Vesper services on Wednesday night will include contemplative prayer. I hope you will be present to join us in these spirit-filled times of worship.
