The purpose of meditation is not to get anywhere, but rather to make ourselves available for God. The reality is that God is always and everywhere present to us. But we are not always present to God. In prayer we open ourselves meet more than our own thoughts and feelings. We open ourselves to meet THE OTHER, the Holy One, the source of love.
The scripture passages or quotes below are simply to help open us up. We encourage you to pause when you find one that stirs anything in you at all. (Regarding the number of quotes and scriptures at a time like this, less is usually better.)
