The fruits of Centering Prayer are numerous and emerge slowly in stages through our daily surrender to love in the practice of this prayer. The evolution of our soul is the principle gift to us out of this deep abiding in divine love. A weekend retreat, “Centering Prayer and the Soul’s Journey into God,” is being offered November 9-11 by the Mercy Center Centering Prayer Program in Burlingame. Inspired by Bonaventure’s “The Soul’s Journey into God,” we will explore the life of St. Francis of Assisi who embodied the unity of all things in himself. Bonaventure reflects on St. Francis as a model for union with God through prayer, whereby one is able to see Christ in all beings, even the most neglected.
Facilitated by the Rev. Amber Sturgess and Joy Andrews Hayter, PhD., join us for a weekend – with God, a praying community, and the natural beauty of the Mercy Center grounds – to deepen our consent to this transformation. For details and registration information, see the church bulletin boards.
