A fine article by Ken Silva on entitled THOMAS KEATING ON CONTEMPLATIVE/CENTERING PRAYER includes a revealing quote by Keating regarding contemplative/centering prayer and its connection to gnostic mysticism. About the quote Silva says,

"We may praise the Lord here for what is perhaps the most succinct and clear statement of nearly everything that I personally have been trying to help you see here at Apprising Ministries about the Gnostic neo-pagan mysticism that these fools who are claiming to be wise Spiritual Masters and Spiritual Directors call contemplative spirituality aka the New Spirituality. All along I have been saying that this so-called “Christian” mysticism is really just watered down TM for the Christian, and this is precisely what Thomas Keating himself has just told you. And now you also know why Emergent Gurus like Richard Foster and his friend Spiritual Director Brian McLaren are forced to equivocate with words in order to cloud the real issues behind their theological agendas."

I will be leaving tomorrow morning to bring my daughter back this way (a ten hour trip one way) as she has decided this is God's will for her for the time being. Please pray for our travel safety and for her to find a summer job. She is looking forward to living with my older daughter and her husband when she returns. My son will accompany us on this trip, so I am looking forward to spending plenty of uninterrupted time with him. I hope you all have a great weekend!
