What is prayer? Does it simply consist of getting something out of God or does it tap into something deeper in us, a longing for intimate connection, as a parent picks up a child to hold them? This curriculum is to start the discussion as to what prayer means and how we regain a practice that is at the core of who we are. We will hear from theologians and thinkers who share their own journeys of prayer. Part of the curriculum will provide suggestions for practices that can either be done alone or communally. Topics will include: Prayer as Emptying and Making Room; Prayer as Communion; Prayer as the Gift of Presence; Prayer as Breath for the Journey; Prayer as an Agent of Transformation; Prayer as Listening Please sign up on the Adult Ministries Bulletin Board in the hallway for either session or call the church office.
