Join us each Monday evening for a short service. We meet in the St. John Room, entering from the parking lot through the back door of our Centre for Ministry. During the summer months, we try to fit in a couple of contemplative walks of the labyrinth at the Bethlehem Centre in Nanaimo.
To practice Contemplative Prayer a set format is used. We begin with a selection of music as we centre ourselves into silence. We hear the Gospel selection read aloud and when the reverberation of the Singing Bowl dies away …. Silence …. 20 minutes pass and the music draws us out of the silence, the Gospel is read again, and we close with the Lord’s Prayer.
Sometimes there is short reflection on what we have heard in the reading or we spend a little time catching up on one another’s lives. All are welcome to join us in this oasis of peace for this contemplative time.
