Our Living Presence Community is a progressive Christian Community living in awareness of the unfolding Universe.
We aim for the use of contemplative Silence and the teachings of Michael Morwood and other progressive Christians to bring Jesus and his message to our contemporary world view.
ALL ARE WELCOME !
Let us not feel guilty
when our concept of God
in wafer size
all of life
The ritual of repetition
gives way to awarness
of a second
and we find all eternity
is in it
Jesus called us all to the table
and we now believe that life
itself is Eucharist
Roshi Ann Ankai Wagner
We start with communion in God in our own hearts. Our focus is periods of silence, (ZaZen), liturgy and ceremonial rituals that unite us to the earth, creativity, and God within us and all creation.
“Divinity is a reality in which we all share”
Michael Morwood’s book ‘Praying a New Story’ is used during our gatherings as well as teachings of other progressive Christians, like Richard Rohr, Joan Chittister OSB, Fr. Thomas Berry, Thomas Merton,.
ZEN- Seeing into “one’s” own nature, seeing through and seeing clearly the reality of everything not separated from one self.
We believe that too much language tends to hide more than reveal. In silence, stillness and awareness, the deep knowing that is wisdom arises.
