Tuesdays, September 7 – December 21, 2021
7:00 – 7:40 pm (Central Time via Zoom)

Tuesday evening meditation will continue to gather via Zoom this fall.

Meditation together is a way of supporting our personal practices. 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 promptly at 7pm, so please join the Zoom before that because the waiting room will become inactive, and you will no longer be able to join the session.

COST:  Free. Registration not required.
