Workshop Led by the Rev. Tom Ward
Saturday, April 1, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The Reverend Tom Ward returns to St. John’s to lead a workshop on Centering Prayer. Tom has been an Episcopal priest for more than thirty years, serving parishes in Mississippi and Tennessee. From 1994 through 2005, he was University Chaplain at Sewanee, The University of the South. Tom now focuses on the contemplative dimension of the gospel, teaching centering prayer and leading retreats. He has a special interest in fostering this practice in local congregations. Centering Prayer is a form of prayer that is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship. The intention to consent to God’s presence and action in our lives is the heart and soul of the Centering Prayer practice. An article written by Tom on Centering Prayer can be found on the Church tract rack and on the church website. Evangeline Gravina in the Parish Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 202-347-8766, ext. 301. The cost for lunch is $10.
