Peachtree City United Methodist Church invites the community to a Centering Prayer Workshop on Saturday, February 27, from 8:30 AM - 3:00 PM. Centering Prayer helps open minds and hearts to the presence of Christ and to deeper relationship with him. Rather than replace other forms of prayer, Centering Prayer casts a new light and depth on the meaning of them. Based in Christian tradition, the practice of Centering Prayer was developed as a way of praying that leads one beyond conversation with Christ to communion with Christ through silence, solitude and simplicity.
Led by Roberta Oster, coordinator for Contemplative Outreach of Atlanta, the cost of the workshop is $30. Register online at www.ptcumc.org or by calling the church at 770.487.6499. Reservations made by February 24 will include a box lunch and drink. The church will take registrations at the door on February 27 (lunch not included).
Registration includes an optional six-week Centering Prayer weekly study on Mondays from 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM, March 1 through April 12. Participation in the workshop is not a requirement for the weekly study. Advance registration is encouraged.
“I am looking forward to the Centering Prayer Workshop because in the midst of my often busy life I need to learn more about stillness. I believe that centering prayer will offer me a way to rest in the presence of God’s love and grace,” said Kim Reindl, Director of Adult Christian Formation at PTCUMC.
Both the workshop and the weekly study group will be held at the PTCUMC Worship Campus, 225 Robinson Rd in Peachtree City. For more information on the practice of Centering Prayer go to www.contemplativeoutreach.org.
