“One of the ways I have found helpful in moving into the ‘other world’ is a technique called centering prayer (You might want to read M. Basil Pennington’s book on the subject, Centering Prayer. I don’t agree with the entire book, but…”)***
The above quote is from Approaching God: Accepting The Invitation To Stand In The Presence Of God, pg. 117, by Steve Brown, one of the scheduled headliners for the Liberate 2014/One Way Love Conference at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, Feb. 20-23.
One Way Love is also the title of the new book by Coral Ridge Pastor Tully Tchividjian.
“On the other side of the silence, I encountered the God who is really there. It took a long time to still the other voices in my mind, a long time to be quiet, but he did come.” —From Approaching God, pg. 6, by Steve Brown
“One of the reasons most people who go to a deeper level of prayer have a confessor, spiritual director or companion is to make sure they don’t go off the deep end and wander into spiritual territory they know nothing about.” —From Approaching God, pg. 104, by Steve Brown.
The onslaught continues. As we see from the above quotes by Steve Brown, who as noted will be speaking at the Liberate 2014/One Way Love Conference at Tully Tchvidjian’s church in February, contemplative influence is already in the Reformed Camp.
Perhaps it has been there far longer than most of us have realized. Steve Brown taught at Reformed Theological Seminary for almost twenty years.  One of the courses he taught was APPROACHING GOD: The Pastor’s Contemplative Life.
How many students were influenced by this class? The Reading List for the class is a contemplative-palooza: Richard Foster, Brennan Manning, Philip Yancey, Gerald May, and the class is further encouraged to read Henri Nouwen. 
As it turns out, there are other RTS contemplative related courses besides Brown’s. 
RTS is listed as Partner of the Liberate 2014/One Way Love Conference. 
I want to stress this is not an attack on Brown, or RTS, or on the conference. But contemplative prayer changes people, dulls, affects, or determines theology. It is not of Christ. We need to continue warning people.
Believers might want to take a hard look at the Strange Fire happening to many Reformed people.
Latest: Will Pastor Tchividjian allow contemplative speaker at conference hosted by Coral Ridge Presbyterian?
