Centering Prayer Meetings via Zoom
"We are already One." Thomas Merton
During this time of required social distancing,
Stillpoint will have 2 Centering Prayer meetings each week using Zoom:
Click here for Zoom link: Tuesday from 1pm - 2pm
Click here for Zoom link: Thursday evening from 7:30pm - 8:30pm.
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 relation with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.
In order to begin on time, if possible, please login in 5-10 minutes ahead of our starting time using this Zoom link. Click here.
During each of our 20 minutes of Centering Prayer, please mute your audio. Thank You!
Contemplative Outreach is a wonderful resource for information about Centering Prayer as well as other
forms of prayer. Click here.

It’s a good idea to give yourself time to test this out before our call begins! You can do this right now or anytime before the call begins; although the experience will look different with only you on the call.
1) Click this link and you’ll be prompted to download Zoom Conference application on your computer, AUTOMATICALLY
(If for any reason the download isn’t automatic, you should see an option to download, which you can click manually.)
2) Zoom will automatically launch once it is downloaded, and a window will open, prompting you to select which audio you’d like to use.
3) Click to Share Your Video
4) Click to use Computer Audio
5) Your Video should now be on and you’ll see yourself on screen
If you have trouble with these steps, there’s a short video on this page to help get a sense of what everything will look like: Click here
NOTE: Once you’re inside the Zoom conference window, you’ll have VIDEO and AUDIO controls at the bottom of your screen, AND you’ll have the option to select SPEAKER VIEW or GALLERY VIEW in the upper right. Speaker View places the current speaker (or you if you’re the only one on the call) in a large window and the other participants in small Thumbnail Windows. Gallery View places all participants in the same sized Tile Windows.
