The purpose of this group is to grow in Centering Prayer and Contemplative Dialogue in community, to further God's realm in the world.  We do this through Centering Prayer, readings, and reflection.  The group meets every Tuesday with some exceptions from 2:45 pm till 4:30 pm in the First Church library.

The format is fixed by the process of using specific practices to share a reading from the works of Christian writers, reflection through a controlled process, and sharing a 20 minute period of Centering Prayer.  All who would like to learn Centering Prayer and share their reflections on a reading such as those of Father Thomas Keating's are invited. 

For additional information or to ask questions, please email ( or call (717-299-6651) Carolene Brubaker.
