Quiet Pools – A Christian Contemplative Ministry for Women

Welcome to Quiet Pools!

For October and November – Special Leaders Circle Event – a video series experience by Ruth Haley Barton on her book,   “Sacred Rhythms – Arranging Your Life for Spiritual Transformation”.  There are six Thursday night dates…come to as many as you wish at the One Way Ministry Center, get all of the dates and details here.    

Quiet Pools encourages, equips and facilitates contemplative opportunities to encounter God through the spiritual disciplines, scriptural practices and godly habits of the heart.

Our scriptural theme Psalm 23 that says, “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.  He makes me to lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside the quiet waters, he restores my soul.”  Soul restoration often comes when we let the Lord lead us to those still and quiet places where we can delight in him and enjoy his rest. 

Discipline in the spiritual life is the concentrated effort to create the space and time where God can become our master and where we can respond freely to God’s guidance. Thus, discipline is the creation of boundaries that keep time and space open for God. Solitude requires discipline, worship requires discipline, caring for others requires discipline. They all ask us to set apart a time and a place where God’s gracious presence can be acknowledged and responded to.  Henri Nouwen

Quiet Pools is a cross-denominational ministry that is Bible-based, God-honouring, Christ centered and Holy Spirit guided.  In addition we value resources from authors such as  A.W. Tozer, Richard Foster, Ruth Haley Barton, Mark Buchanan, Henri Nouwen, Pete Scazzero, as well as from monastic communities and Christian prayer communities throughout the ages.
