VNC offering Centering Prayer Retreat

Posted: Friday, October 9, 2015

Victory Noll Center is be presenting a number of overnight retreat opportunities this year, offering a timeless way to be renewed in a timely fashion. The Friday and Saturday schedules include Taize prayer, input around the particular topic, quiet reflection space and conversation. The next of these events is the “Centering Prayer Retreat” to be held October 23 and 24.

Psalm 46 invites us to “Be still and know that I am God.” The practice of Centering Prayer offers a way to set aside the business and clamoring of life so that we might surrender to the Divine Presence of God dwelling within. For those desiring to grow in their prayer, Centering Prayer and Lectio Divina are practices that complement each other and draw us deeper in our life in Christ. This retreat will explore these spiritual disciplines and allow ample time for practice both in community and individually.

The retreat will begin at 7 p.m. Friday, October 23, and continue until 1 p.m. Saturday, October 24. The cost is $75 for those staying overnight at Victory Noll Center and includes accommodations, meals and retreats. The cost is $50 for commuters. Registration is required by October 13.

Victory Noll Center is located at 1900 West Park Drive.
