June 26, 2015, Columbia, MO - Our Lady of Lourdes Church.
Contemplative Outreach of Central Missouri (COCEMO) was blessed with the opportunity to provide about 150 attendees with a unique experience. They were able to hear Fr. William Meninger, OCSO, a renowned spiritual teacher, retreat master and author, as he shared his 50+ years of experience relating to his, and our own, search for God. During the second part of his presentation he taught the group his personal approach to Centering Prayer and led those assembled in a brief Centering Prayer session. Fr. Meninger, along with Fr. Basil Pennington and Fr. Thomas Keating were the creators of this contemporary method of Christian meditation. All who attended also shared in fellowship, refreshments and book sales. Fr. Meninger was available for book signing and personal encounters with the participants.
