During Lent this year our Thursday evening Adult Ed series will focus once again on spiritual practices. Starting on Thursday, March 9th at 6:30pm we will have a five week series on different types of meditation. Meditation is a form of prayer that effectively draws one closer to God and has been shown to have positive impact on the body and brain. However, there are many forms of meditation, so how do you know which form of meditation is best for you? Over this five week series we will learn about and actually practice a different type of meditation each week including: lectio divina, breathing meditation, body mediation, the Jesus prayer, and centering prayer. Light supper and childcare are provided.
