The Prayer Buffet is Here!

5 weeks / 5 different ways to pray

Wednesdays, Mar. 13–Apr. 10, 5:30–7:00 PM

— Led by Rev. Rick —

Are you ever unsure how to start a regular prayer discipline? Are you stuck in a rut in your prayer life?  Well, the Prayer Buffet is here to rescue you!  Whether you are more comfortable with the classic Book of Common Prayer or want a prayer practice that allows you to doodle while you pray, there is a delicious offering for you here at the buffet!  We will be having a light soup supper at 5:30 PM, followed by the class (Volunteers from class can sign up to bring soup!)  We will be meeting in the Library downstairs in the Church.

 

  • Mar. 13 — Using the Book of Common Prayer for daily devotion.
  • Mar. 20 — Walking the Labyrinth (Walking is the prayer.)
  • Mar. 27 — Praying with Color (For you artsy types!)
  • Apr. 3 —  Centering Prayer
  • Apr. 10 — The Anglican Rosary (You can bring your own, or I will have simple ones for sale for $7.00! Many nice ones are available on Amazon.  Perhaps try it in class, and then if this prayer practice works for you, invest in a nicer one.)
