The focus of Centering Prayer is the deepening of our relationship with the living Christ. It tends to build communities of faith and bond the members together in mutual friendship and love. Centering prayer is a prayer of intention, presence, and listening. We begin with a 20 minute Centering Prayer session and then discuss the book we are reading. Right now we are reading "Advent to Epiphany: Engaging the Heart of Christmas" by Leina Apsukrapsa & Jacqueline Hullaby.
