PROGRESS IN PRAYER

About this Series

This new series offers practical insight for the practice of prayer and relationship with God. We’ll distinguish types of prayer and experiences that occur along the various stages of the spiritual journey. As we do, we’ll explore experiences of and progress in prayer that occurs in the prayer closet, both vocal prayer and silent, contemplative prayer; and we’ll consider experiences of and progress in prayer that occurs outside the prayer closet in daily life. In all, we’ll be fostering an enhanced experience of listening for, responding to, and abiding in the inspirations and movements of the Holy Spirit within and without.

REFLECTIONS ON CONTEMPLATIVE LIFE & PRACTICE: WHO IS GOD?

About this Series

Who is God? “When you say God, you don’t really mean God. You mean your idea of God, or, to put it another way, you mean God as not-God. I say that because whatever we say about God is more unlike who God is than saying nothing. And so, where do we begin?” (Thomas Keating).
