Diakonia is a community of students, faculty, and staff committed to living the contemplative dimensions of the Gospel in their everyday Wake Forest lives.  Centering Prayer is a means of preparing to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit by opening to God’s presence and action within.   The benefits of Centering Prayer are ecclesial, as this ancient expression of Christian prayer tends to build communities of faith and bond the participants in mutual friendship and love.  Diakonia welcomes and affirms all who come here to seek the sacred, and who will work toward respectful acceptance of others across our many differences, harmonizing the one with the many.
