Lakeside Preschool Registration

Thursdays at noon - Parlor, Education Building
The psalmist says: "Be still and know that I am God." One way to experience this oneness is through the practice of meditation or centered prayer. When we pray sincerely, we are open to being changed by the very act of prayer itself. Thus the essence of meditation is learning to stand back from ourselves and allow God to come to the forefront of our life.
Amy Shortt leads a group in meditation on Thursdays at noon in the Parlor.
