Christian Meditation. Contemplation, a gift of grace, is the experience of being with God in the temple or holy place. All humans need this experience. From earliest times Christians understood that the practice of being still in God’s presence is essential to our faith and for health of our spirit. Not an escape from life, the work of meditation enables us to live better and supports all other forms of prayer. We get closer to being who God intended us to be. Meditating together weekly in community helps to build our personal daily practices. Anyone may join us in silence and stillness with or without experience. For more information, please contact Linda Schmalstieg at 832-922-1650. Also meets Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m. Margaret’s Parlor.
