Beyond Process

Centered Living


Description
OVERVIEW
Many of us long for having time to sit in the presence of God, to be close to Him and yet find obstacles to that journey. Throughout the history of the Church, followers of Jesus have found that practicing simple exercises or “disciplines” were a gateway to new spiritual vistas. You will be introduced to these disciplines that bring people into the presence of God. These are not legalistic set of rules but rather practices that, through grace, tap into the healing and transforming love of God.
