"Centering Prayer"

“Centering Prayer”

Presenter:  Richard Lewis

at Nancy Simons’ Residence


On this night we are welcoming presenter Rich Lewis. He is a UCC member from Horsham who started to practice Centering Prayer a few years ago. It is contemplative Prayer with the help of a sacred word or symbol. We will learn what Centering Prayer is, practice it and reflect. On his website,, Lewis writes:

 "Centering prayer is a practice that opens us to the gift of contemplative prayer.  During Contemplative prayer we sit with God.  We open our mind, heart and body to God who is beyond thoughts, words and emotions.”


 Centering prayer was developed in the 1970’s by three Trappist monks at the St. Joseph’s Abbey in Spencer, Massachusetts, Fathers William Meninger, Basil Pennington and Thomas Keating."
