What do you think of when you hear “contemplative prayer”? Is it just a vague sense of quiet thoughtfulness? Does it feel like something for a select few, with the time and inclination to spend hours in silence? Are you drawn to it? Is it a comfortable practice for you to explore, or does it seem a little too woo-woo? Or are you not even totally sure what it means? We’re going to spend some time this week, exploring contemplative prayer—both learning about it, and getting our feet wet with practicing it a little bit. But as we begin, notice what is coming up in you—what are your questions, your fears, your wonderings, your hopes as we lean into contemplative prayer this week (feel free to share in the comments!)?
