Explore the Diversity of Contemplative Practice

Set aside what you believe and listen

Before you begin, take a deep breathe and find the center of your being.

Take your time here, read slowly, and then again with a deeper sacred awareness. 

Then from a cloud came a voice that said, “this is my Beloved, my Chosen. Listen to him” – Luke 9:35

Set aside what you believe. Listen to him.

What is he saying to you. in this moment?

Let go of what you think; What do you hear?

Become a calm meadow and wait for the breeze of God to wisper.

Wait for a small bird to settle and sing.

Read the texts,

Say your prayers,

Silence your thoughts,

Shut out the preacher,

Listen for a fainter voice,

From so deep within it is from beyond, 

purer than words,

the voice that wants you, loves you, creates you.

The voice may surprise you,

contradict or confuse,

but it will shine with light from beyond all death.

Listen for the voice that calls you from your tomb into the light.

The breeze stirs,

the small trees bend.

Deep Blessings,

Pastor Steve
