Christian Meditation?

As part of my gig doing chaplaincy for the Victorian Schools Basketball Team I'm planning on doing a bit of meditation/prayer with the kids. Just to show them a few alternative ways to connect with God-something they probably wouldn't do at school or youth group etc.

I've got a fair few ideas, just wondering if anybody else knows of any good resources/websites to look at or get some ideas and perspectives from. I've google'd it, but I hate sorting through the 310000 responses you get there to try and find something helpful!

Steve Taylor (emergentkiwi) blogged once about a celtic Christian meditation that used a circle of stones. Email Steve he is good at this stuff!

Richard Foster's "Celebration of Discipline" covers number of disciplines and has a really good chapter on meditation. There is a study guide version avalable that I've used every year with my interns for the past four years. With out fail it has been a significant for them all.

Yeah it ended up working really well. Thanks for that Matt-a few people have recommended that book before-will definitely have to get stuck into it.
