Perhaps no other day in the Christian calendar lends itself to contemplative silence more than Good Friday. Men & women of all faiths desiring to deepen their prayer life will benefit from this one-day retreat, which will feature several periods of shared centering prayer online. Also, our centering prayer periods will be punctuated with readings from Scripture and Father Thomas Keating, Founder of Contemplative Outreach, keeping the cross in view throughout the day, as we revisit its meaning in our lives and in the life of the world. “To embrace the cross of Christ is to be willing to leave behind the self as a fixed point of reference. It is to die to all separation, even to a self that has been transformed.” T Keating.
Rev. Rob Carr will faclitate the retreat. Rob has represented Contemplative Outreach Kansas City as a centering prayer presenter and retreat leader since 2002. He has also been active in leadership with the Academy for Spiritual Formation for 15 years. A graduate of the Souljourners Program in Spiritual Guidance through the Sophia Center.
