Go Deeper

Saturday, November 10, 2018
8:30am – 1:00pm

Grace Episcopal Church (Thompson Room)
514 E. Argonne Dr., Kirkwood, MO 63122

Contemplative Outreach of St. Louis will host its next “Go Deeper” session on November 10, 2018. This ongoing program is designed to deepen and inform our spiritual life. Each session will speak to our yearning to open to and experience our loving God more deeply.

The topic for this presentation will be “The Welcoming Prayer” given by long-time presenter Jim McElroy. The Welcoming Prayer is a method of consenting to God’s presence and action in our physical and emotional reactions to events and situations in daily life.  The focus will be on the basics of the prayer as well as its fruits, which includes helping to heal the emotional wounds of a lifetime, helping to dismantle the emotional programs for happiness, deepening our relationships with God, helping us live in the present moment, and helping in the transformation in daily life as a companion practice to Centering Prayer.

What a great way to prepare for Thanksgiving and Advent!

Anyone with an established Centering Prayer practice is welcome. The day will include opening and closing Centering Prayer periods and opportunities for discussion. Please note that no meals will be served, but coffee, tea, fruit, and nuts will be available. Feel free to bring your own snacks with you. There is no cost or registration for this event. We only ask for a free will donation to cover expenses.

We are all on our spiritual journey every minute of every day. The journey can be very subtle, challenging and exhilarating. It requires an openness to change. How we deal with these changes can make all the difference. We invite you to “Go Deeper” and open to what God wants for you. Please contact Kathy Dunn or Karlye Keleher with any questions.
