Contemplative Outreach Lexington
The intent of Contemplative Outreach is to foster the process of transformation in
Christ in one another through the practice of Centering Prayer.
We hope you all are doing well and enjoying the Thanksgiving holiday.  We are especially thankful for the good work of the Lexington Chapter Leadership Team.  Our first official event is the Lexington Silent Saturday, which will take place on December 3rd. We hope you will join as Kelly Sherkat leads us in a morning of Silence and Reflection (see details below). 

We are hosting two Centering Prayer Introductory Workshops; December 10th and January 21st.   Although there are only a few spaces available for the  December 10th Introductory Workshop, we have space available for the January 21st Workshop. Following each workshop on Saturday morning, we will schedule six follow-up group meetings to complete the Introduction Program. 

The Introductory Program is specifically designed for people who have no knowledge of Centering Prayer, so please pass this on to anyone who might be interested in learning. However, even if you have previously attended an Introductory Workshop, you are invited and encouraged to attend again.  New people benefit by the example of more experienced practitioners, and experienced practitioners often say they learn something they may have missed or forgotten.  We hope to see you at a workshop - all are welcome!

More news - We warmly welcome the Danville Centering Prayer group to our Lexington Chapter.  The Danville group meets on Thursday afternoons at the First Christian Church, facilitated by Paula Reister.  All are welcome, and we look forward to seeing our Danville friends at future events.
Finally, we direct your attention to an updated list of our Centering Prayer groups.  You are welcome to join these groups any time!

Prayers for a blessed Advent.

In Gratitude+
