Introduction to the Contemplative Tradition

Introduction to the Contemplative Tradition | Sunday | October 14 | 10:00 am | Great Hall

The Reverend Doyt L. Conn, Jr.

The Contemplative Tradition (aka the Prayer-Filled Life) gives special attention to loving God through prayer. At the heart of each tradition of the church is God. Jesus is “God with us,” a physical presence to show us what God is like. His actions and words reveal God’s nature to us. When we practice “the prayer-filled life” – that is, the contemplative tradition – we discover the tender love of God. But what is interesting is the tremendous variety of ways to approach a “prayer-filled life.”
