Welcome to the Waterworks Podcast! Missy Schoonover and Rev. Karen Weiss's discuss our "responsibility" and God's grace. 

 On another note, there was some crazy weather happening while we were recording the podcast (on March 31, 2022), and it was a bit distracting. 

If you're looking for a spiritual director, reach out to us at www.waterworksministries.org.

Also, we're doing a day retreat in Mechanicsburg, PA on June 18, 2022. Information is at www.waterworksministries.org/store

Episode 31: Prayer: Listening and Stillness

Episode 31: Prayer: Listening and Stillness

May 23, 2019

Hello, hello! Welcome to episode 31 of the Waterworks Podcast! We're in season 3, how to be a badass joy enthusiast! 

Here are some resources for you if you're unfamiliar with centering prayer and imaginative prayer.

Centering Prayer

  • Contemplative Outreach has a centering prayer app that is great. It outlines briefly the four guidelines for centering prayer, offers poems and scripture for opening and closing the prayer time, and has a timer where you can select the beginning and ending chimes. You can get more information on CP from www.contemplativeoutreach.org.
  • Cynthia Bourgeault wrote a book on centering prayer titled Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening that I found helpful.

Imaginative Prayer

Other Books mentioned are Ruth Haley Barton's Sacred Rhythms and Richard Foster's Celebration of Discipline. Both mention stillness and/or silence and how important it is to create space for stillness. 

Don't forget to get your copy of Fierce Grace on Kindle or in paperback. For a signed copy, go to our website, www.waterworksministries.org/store.

We are expanding our spiritual direction and coaching practice and have several openings available beginning in June 2019. Contact us today to reserve your spot!
