Are you sensing “deep calling to deep” (Psalm 42:7) within your spirit that requires new ways of interacting with God? Spend a day exploring new prayer practices and revisiting others as a means of going deeper with God, including centering prayer and praying with collage. The day will consist of guided prayer experiences, teaching, and sharing. “Prayer is sitting in the silence until it silences us, choosing gratitude until we are grateful, and praising God until we ourselves are acts of praise.” Fr. Richard Rohr.
Those who wish to try praying with collage, please begin to collect pictures from magazines and have these pictures, along with your own glue stick, and scissors, available.
