"Far Away, So Close, The Divine Relationship"
Featuring Kess Frey, Lecturer and Author
A paradox of the divine relationship we all have with God is that it’s typically far away and so close at the same time. Join us for this fascinating lecture in which Kess explores the how and why of this paradox and how we may grow closer to God through our practice of Centering Prayer.
