Tuesday Noonday Meditation

"Each time we practice Christian meditation we, through the process of detaching from our rational minds and our ego self, surrender ourselves totally to the divine Other.  Each prayer period becomes a way of saying: You are not only the center of my life; you are my life"

Eileen O’Hea

Advent is a time of waiting.  We wait for the celebration of Christmas, the feast of the incarnation of God in Jesus. We wait for that time when God will be all in all.  And in between, we contemplate the mystery of the Divine here and now, God present in all that is, sustaining all in life and love, manifesting in all, in us. 

Wisdom Ways offers two contemplative experiences to enliven our waiting.
