The Ruling Elders of the Session and Committee Chairs
Called into mission by God, trusting in Jesus Christ as our savior and example, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, together we use our diverse gifts to provide inspiration for living, motivation for sharing, and opportunities for serving Christ's church in the world.
There were seven participants in the Tabor's initial Centering Prayer session, led by Herb Ely, a facilitator for Contemplative Outreach. The following, borrowed from www.contemplativeoutreach.org, describes the practice of Centering Prayer.
"Centering Prayer is a receptive method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, prayer in which we experience God's presence within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than consciousness itself. This method of prayer is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship."
"Centering Prayer is not meant to replace other kinds of prayer. Rather, it adds depth of meaning to all prayer and facilitates the movement from more active modes of prayer - verbal, mental or affective prayer - into a receptive prayer of resting in God. Centering Prayer emphasizes prayer as a personal relationship with God and as a movement beyond conversation with Christ to communion with Christ."

On Saturday, November 10, local Presbyterian volunteers worked on the Habitat for House. Thank you to Tabor members who provided lunch for the volunteers. See that guy in the middle in the navy vest and white hard hat? That's our very own Tony Baglioni. Looking good, Tony, and thank you for your ongoing dedication to the H4H efforts!
