DISCERNMENT and CONTEMPLATION in the SPIRITUAL JOURNEY

A joint seminar by Fr. Thomas H. Green S.J. and Dr. David G. Benner
April 29, 2006 at the Palace Centerplex

This seminar is intended for all Christians who are seeking a closer personal walk with our Lord Jesus Christ through a deepening of his/her prayer life. To this end, Dr. David Benner will conduct a combination lecture and practical workshop on the topic of Centering Prayer and Lectio Divina. These types of prayer/meditation are designed to create in us an attitude of quiet surrender and openness to the Word spoken to us. Fr. Tom Green will address the question of discernment which he defines as the meeting point of prayer and action. We will learn about the conditions and process of discerning God’s will for our lives as revealed through prayer and an attentiveness to feelings of consolation and desolation.
