United in Prayer Day
Saturday, March 21, 2015 
“The Mystery of God”

Please join us as we celebrate the 23rd Annual United in Prayer Day with our worldwide network of Contemplative Outreach. For the first time, other contemplative groups will be invited to share the day, including Richard Rohr’s Centre for Action and Contemplation, the Worldwide Community of Christian Meditation, Shalem, and the Contemplative Society. We will experience the joy and gift of being united in prayer and united in silence.

The focus of the day will be on Centering Prayer in community, lectio divina and personal reflection. The day will also include a short DVD presentation: “The Mystery of God” by Father Thomas Keating.

Time:              9:30 a.m. to 3:30 pm   Registration and refreshments at 9:30 am
                        Program begins promptly at 10:00 am 

Location:       First Lutheran Church
                        5745 Wales Street (at 42nd Ave), Vancouver, BC

Lunch:           Simple lunch of soup and bread will be provided with some gluten, dairy-free
                        and vegetarian options.

Donation:      A contribution of any amount is appreciated to cover costs of facility   
                        rental, presentation material, lunch and other refreshments. 
                        Suggested amount:  $25

Please note the day is not entirely a silent retreat. Opportunity will be given to respond to the presentation and to connect with others in quiet conversation at lunch time. For those wishing to maintain inner and personal silence during lunch, there will be tables designated for silence. We suggest you wear layered clothing. You may also wish to bring contemplative tools (notebook, pencil crayons, etc.) to assist in your self-directed time.
