Description

THE PLACE OF SILENCE IN DISCIPLESHIP

A Christian response to mindfulness and meditation.

How can we connect again with what saints of old have referred to as ‘the first language of God, silence’? How can we connect our churches with the current and popular search for mindfulness and stillness and be fully Christian in our practice?

These and other questions will be explored by the Revd Clay Roundtree, Vicar of Ingleby Barwick, who will draw from our rich heritage of meditation and contemplation from the example of Christ and in the early church and how these prayerful arts are being presented to the current generation through the World Community for Christian Meditation as well as through the Centre for Action and Contemplation and others. There will be a time of worship centred on a significant time of silence, with thoughts on how to begin a Christian Meditation group or a meditation group with children.

Tuesday 20th November 2018 7.00pm – 9.15pm
