SEASONAL MEDITATION

At St. George’s we offer on the Mondays during Advent and Lent a 1 hr Meditation. In the dim light of the Church and a single candle on the Altar, the evening begins with a Mindfulness relaxation exercise. The aim of this is to relax the body and quiet the mind. In order to be fully present in the moment we need to relieve the tension in the body which has accumulated over the day. In a seated position, we address all the muscles of the body in order from feet to neck. Once we have relaxed the body, we take time to set aside all the wondering thoughts of the day. Here we emphasize that you have willfully chosen this time to focus on being in the presence of God. Now, with a relaxed body and our minds quieted, we hear the Word of God. At this stage of the evening we focus on a scripture passage with a specific point to think about.  Throughout the hour, Taize music is played with moments of silence.

Every individual experiences this time with God differently, so there is no interaction between participants before, during or after the hour of meditation. The intent is to reflect Jesus’ call to prayer in Matthew 6:6 with the experience of the grace of God Jesus identified in Luke 18:13-14.
