Tuesdays, January 5 – May 25, 2021

Tuesday evening meditation will continue to gather via Zoom this Winter/Spring.

Meditation together is a way of supporting our personal practice. Each session will include an opening prayer, a reading, and a 25-minute silent sitting meditation.

Those who have an existing meditation practice are welcome as well as those new to Christian Meditation (instructions available at each session).


Meditation will begin at 7pm, so please join the Zoom before that time. The waiting room will not be active after 7pm.

COST:  Free. Registration not required.
