Reading Course: Into the Silent Land: A Guide to the Christian Practice of Contemplation by Martin Laird
Into the Silent Land will be a good introduction to those new or unfamiliar to contemplative spirituality and will also serve as an ongoing refresher for those who have already entered into this form of spirituality.
Martin Laird shows that the practice of meditation and contemplation in Christianity has a long and ancient history. He brings together wisdom from both the Christian East and West to deepen today’s believers understanding and faith.
This practicum will consist of three parts each Sunday, led by the Rev. Eric Kahl
- A review of the read chapters l
- A discussion of the assigned material
- A time of prayer – practicum – based on Martin’s book
Into the Silent Land reading course will take place in Cummings Chapel from 9 – 9:45 a.m. on Sundays during the month of July (five weeks). The course is offered by The Center for Prayer and Spirituality. Please register using the link below. The book is available in the St. John's Cathedral bookstore.
