A How-To Video on Contemplative Prayer

by Rose Marie Berger, Jeannie Choi | July 2009

Sojourners editors Rose Marie Berger and Jeannie Choi demonstrate simple contemplative prayer practices that anyone can adopt into their own worship habits. In part one, Rose and Jeannie talk about contemplative prayer and learn how to do a simple prayer exercise that uses the verse, "Be still and know that I am God," to center one's heart on God. In part two, Rose teaches Jeannie about Lectio Divina, a meditative reading of the Bible that encourages prayerful reflection.

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)
