The Art and Practice of Prayer
Lenten Study led by Pastor Ed
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.
Monday nights 7:00 p.m. March 11 through April 15
Wednesday mornings at 10:00 a.m. March 183 through April 22
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
