Easter graced us with joy, new hope and gratitude!! Spring, the cool days, sunny skies,
flowers, children enjoying the near closing school days - all speak of the deepening
revelation of God’s ever-present love.
There has been much going on at Cornerstone: The Wednesday group (11:30 am
Casita) have been listening to Laurence’s talks on Relationship with Jesus; Monday
nights (6 pm Casita) have been following Father Ron Rolheiser on “Dark Nights: a
journey of Faith or Imagination?”. Both groups give time for meditation - 20 - 30
minutes, with introduction to new members and time for questions and reflections.
Those times are filled with friendship, sharing and always the encouragement to stay
with the daily practice, the most important part of the ministry! There is also a
small group meeting on Fridays at 11:30 in the Meditation Chapel. A short 4 minutes of
music, silence and peace followed by reflections. There is no charge for any of these
A few reminders: The Casita will soon become history as the rejuvenation of this
beautiful Franciscan Center expands. Our new “corner” will soon be ready. A
newsletter is in preparation and will be available on-line by the end of April.
Watch also for a listing of groups around the Valley who are meditating. I have had
some wonderful visits with some, in Tempe, Sun City, Chandler, Peoria. In some, the
contact person has changed. Please watch for the new listings.
Blessed and Peace-filled Summer ahead! Write, call, email us if we can answer
questions or do anything at all to help you in your search for a deeper “contemplative
Love and Prayers,
The Cornerstone Group
