I actually know the answer to this, but felt like asking and worth having a discussion on:
why do some (if not many) willow creek association churches and seeker churches will support stuff like contemplative prayer and centering prayer
yet the wca and seeker driven folks in general want nothing to do with old fashioned prayer meetings.
I mention this cause I got a friend who somewhat is involved with a wca church here in the omaha area (where I live)
they can only get 5 people out of their 3500 plus members to come to old fashioned prayer meetings their have at their church almost on a weekly basis
(there is no mike bickle nonsense, just a old fashioned prayer meeting where people pray and fellowship)
can someone explain to me,
why seeker churches like the willow creek association churches among others
seem to want to be involved in new-age stuff like contemplative prayer and centering prayer,
and yet if their church has a old fashioned prayer meeting, no one in their church is intrested.
