Contemplative Outreach Symbol
-------------------------------------
Jobs Redeemer – Patient Waiting

  • Alpha and Omega – the Symbol of God – the  Beginning and the End
  • The Cross – the Symbol of our Salvation
  • Flowers – the Symbol of Abundance of Life – the Resurrection
  • Circle – the Sign of Ongoing Progress

The heart and soul of the Centering Prayer is consenting to God’s presence and action in our lives. The Alpha and Omega acknowledges that our God is at the center of our consent and being. The Cross is a symbol of our dying to our thoughts and commentaries. In the letting go our false self gives way to the flowering of the new self. This is an ongoing process bringing us deeper into Divine Intimacy.

Like Job, our patient waiting and consenting will be our gift of gratitude.
