I noticed that your conference is conducting a class on Christian Meditation titled Praying the Scriptures.

I wanted to share a Christian Meditation website that provides a lot of information on Christian meditation as well as free meditation downloads, ebooks, videos, and Christ-centered meditation Cds.

These could be a great supplement to your study.
