As we seek the Mystery that connects us to the Force behind our being there are many ways of listening. When we long for God to meet us we may need new tools to open our senses.
One such tool are the Pearls of Life. First thought up by a humble Swedish bishop who needed a tool of faith for his handicapped son, the Pearls of Life are now widely used in the Scandinavian countries (and Finland) where they are known as Frälsarkransen, Jesuskransen, or Kristuskransen.
Having something tangible to meditate with can help us keep focus when the worries, great and small, of everyday life seem to keep us from connecting with the Mystery. Whether we are comfortable with church and Sunday service, are seekers of many years or are taking our first few steps to align our lives with that which is greater than ourselves, these evenings with the Pearls of Life are for us all. You may come for one or two evenings, or for all—this is an open community.
While we listen to soothing music we will do a meditation. If you are used to meditating it may seem short, but if you have never tried it before you may get as many new impressions as if it had taken all night.
After a short break, to let those who want to stay in the meditative mood go their own ways, we will talk about the experiences we may have had (you only share if you want to). There will be time for questions and comments and anything else that may surface.
