Unceasing Prayer: An Introduction to Various Forms
Thurs., Jul. 9, 7-9p
S. Meg Funk OSB
From Paul's earliest instruction to "pray without ceasing" (1 Thess. 5:17), Christians have nurtured and taught practices which quiet, redirect, or escape raging thoughts and emotions that distract us from the presence of God. S. Meg Funk OSB has long studied and practiced these disciplines herself and offers an overview of a number of such practices. Those new to the idea will discover tools from within the Christian tradition, while those who are familiar will deepen their understanding. Register online.
