Resources for Christian Meditation
Some of us grew up with funny ideas about meditation. If it wasn’t Christian, it was considered unholy. If it was Christian, it might have been synonymous with scripture memorization. Or it was just weird.
Let’s look at what meditation really is.
The dictionary says that meditation is continued or extended thought, reflection, or contemplation.
By this standard, meditation is also what we do in the shower. It’s what we do after a meal with a friend when we analyze the conversation we just had. It’s what we do in the middle of the night when we struggle to sleep.
What makes meditation so powerful – to our benefit or our detriment – is that our contemplation often becomes our reality.
Here are some resources to help us learn more about and grow in Christian meditation.
