A Gentle Journey of Prayers and Reflections

Contemplation: A Gentle Journey of Prayers and Reflections

A Gentle Journey isn’t a service – it’s a selection of prayers and reflections accompanied by restful music and tranquil images. Lasting just over 15 minutes, we hope that you will find peace and relaxation, comfort and inspiration – a time of quiet contemplation as you listen to these words of praise.
