Dearborn, MI 48124
Sunday Worship 8am and 10am -
in-person worship, Zoom, and Facebook.
We feed people in mind, body, and spirit through prayer, music, and opportunities to learn about the diversity in our Dearborn community. We believe that we are called by God to dismantle systemic oppression, and that work begins with each person individually. We believe that our diversity reveals the expansive nature of God's self. This revelation calls us to acts of justice informed by our faith in the teachings of Jesus. We aim to live this out in all of our relationships, but especially through the Partnership in Faith with Christ Church and Mother of the Savior, between English speaking and Arabic speaking Christian congregations and our investment in building bridges with our Muslim sisters and brothers.
Centering Prayer is contemplative form of group prayer, usually done with the attendees sitting in a circle in silence for twenty minutes. The prayer time begins and ends with some short meditative offering to center those who are about to pray. This might be The Lord's Prayer or something else. Those praying may use a word of phrase to help in the focus and centering of the prayer time. This work or phrase is often two syllables designed to connect the first syllable as one breathes in and then the second syllable as one breathes out. For example one might use the word Jesus this way: breath in while thinking JE....breath out while thinking SUS and repeat JE-SUS. One might also use a different word.
The Centering Prayer group at Christ Church meets on Tuesday nights from 6pm-67:00pm in the Lounge, found on the main floor, north end, across from the chapel.
