Concentrated time with Jesus and a faithful, beloved community such as the ones formed at camp are important for all of us.
Moving is once again making me realize: all of life is detaching from that which does not last forever and clinging to the good news in Christ.
I started to very intentionally work prayer into our daily conversation in ways that didn’t feel forced or hokey.
I made a handout to teach my parish the practice of Compline. I wasn’t sure quite what would happen when I took five home.
When modern people think about prayer, often we wonder “does prayer work?” But that question rests on false assumptions. Real prayer works – on us.
If I want to be able to absorb all the new life Easter has to offer – all the resistance it offers to the powers of sin in our broken world – I need the grace that comes with honest confession and repentance.
That little black book went every where with me. And one day, on a particularly scary day, it probably saved my sanity.
Our family is in church every Sunday. Except for one week this summer, when we weren’t.
Inwardly Digest, a new book exploring the spiritual lessons of the Book of Common Prayer, was just released. We’re giving away a copy… just comment on this post.
My dad didn’t just explain football to me—he and mom explained what was going on in church too: what we were doing and why it was important. Now I do the same.
