Peachtree City UMC plans Centering Prayer workshop

Peachtree City United Methodist Church invites the community to a Centering Prayer Workshop on Saturday, Feb. 27, from 8:30 a.m. - 3 p.m.

“Centering Prayer helps open minds and hearts to the presence of Christ and to deeper relationship with him,” a spokesperson said. “Rather than replace other forms of prayer, Centering Prayer casts a new light and depth on the meaning of them. Based in Christian tradition, the practice of Centering Prayer was developed as a way of praying that leads one beyond conversation with Christ to communion with Christ through silence, solitude and simplicity.” Read More»
