Ultimately, meditation (silent prayer) is not about mastering techniques, it’s about relationship.
You could describe it as the quiet, steady work of simply being here, fully present to the gift of our life. Which means it is also the quiet, steady work of being present with and for those around us. Because all that we have, all that we are, is born in and from relationship.
As coronavirus shines a powerful light on those aspects of our culture which encourage collaboration, friendship and relationship, over rivalry, competition and separateness, this short podcast introduces two simple practices Chris was introduced to during his time living at a Benedictine monastery, to help us be more present, to become places of peace for each other, to be become places where God happens for those around us.
Take this opportunity to spend some deep reflective time with God, as Chris unpacks this hope-filled message. The podcast concludes with 10 minutes for silent prayer and contemplation.
