Take Lord, and Receive

Growing up Southern Baptist, and now a minister in the Assemblies of God, contemplative prayer (sadly) was not exactly part of my life. A few years ago I attended my first silent retreat at a Roman Catholic Spirituality Center and learned a little about Ignatius and his spiritual disciplines. I'm finding myself drawn back to studying Ignatius and to practicing lectio devina and other kinds of contemplative prayer. Here is a short video adaptation of The Contemplatio, which is found at the the end of Ignatius' Spiritual Disciplines.
