“Meditating the Lord’s Prayer”
Led by Byron Armantrout & Louise Sloan Goben
It is called the Lord’s Prayer because it was the prayer given by Jesus in response to a request from his disciples for guidance on how to pray. It is the most well-known prayer of the church, and we often say it by rote. Louise and Byron would like to take you into a deeper use of the prayer by incorporating body (Tai Chi), breath and visualization (chakra meditation) as we grow in understanding the transformative power of the Lord’s Prayer.
Louise Sloan Goben serves as the Associate Minister at First Christian Church, North Hollywood and has practiced meditation for over 30 years.
Byron Armantrout is an instructor and practitioner of Tai Chi and Chi Gong (and their principles of relaxation, meditation and breathing) for over 25 years. He is a member of First Christian Church, North Hollywood.

Faith In Films
During the months of July and August we view films during the regular Monday Night Bible Study time slot. Films are selected not simply for their entertainment value, but also for their thought value. A theme is selected for the season and films are chosen to appeal to a broad viewership. We include animated, classic, foreign as well a newer films, then we engage in conversation about how these stories speak to our faith and values. Also during the Christmas season we show well-known holiday films. There is never a charge to see the movies, and of course popcorn is provided!
