Notices – March 2012

An inclusive Christian community in Auckland, New Zealand

Notices – March 2012

Now for something completely different:

Contemplative Prayer Groups

These are being held through the Lenten period and are an opportunity to enrich our spiritual life in a different way than perhaps we are used to.

Contemplative prayer does away with verbal or discursive interaction with God.  Henri Nouwen describes it “first of all (as) an attitude of being empty for God”.  We try to discipline ourselves to be silent; just to be with God.  It requires no activity from us other than to have the intention of being with God and being open to the working of His Spirit.

Remember that “we are not human beings on a spiritual path but spiritual beings on a human path”.  Contemplative Prayer is a way of deepening our spirituality.

The groups will be co – facilitated by Helene Muller and Alf Taylor

Time:         7.00pm – 9.00pm

Date:          Tuesday 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th March and 3rd April

Place:        LindisfarneLounge, St Aidans

 

But wait there is more………….
