Advice for Meditation/Contemplation Newbies
What Twitter suggested they'd want to tell someone just starting out in Christian Meditation or Contemplative Prayer. I asked for advice for a teenager, for the Teenage Prayer Experiment book that I am currently writing with my son Noah (due out with SPCK in April 2012!). But too good not to share!
