Thursday evenings at First Presbyterian
We will meet for meditation on all Thursdays in November (except Thanksgiving) and December (except Dec. 22 and 29) from 7:00 – 9:00 pm in the fellowship hall. Our format for the first hour is two 20-minute periods of sitting in silence with a 10 minute walking meditation in between. For the second hour, we are doing a contemplative listening book reading. We are currently reading short sections from a book by Pema Chodron, The Pocket Pema Chodron. Join us for either or both hours.

The Evolution of the Contemplative
Christian Spiritual Journey (DVD)
In the busyness of this day
grant me a stillness of seeing, O God.
In the conflicting voices of my heart
grant me a calmness of hearing.
Let my seeing and hearing
my words and my actions
be rooted in a silent certainty of your presence.
Let my passions for life
and the longings for justice that stir within me
be grounded in the experience of your stillness.
Let my life be rooted in the ground of your peace, O God.
let me be rooted in the depths of your peace.
