Lenten Evening Series: Called to a Life of Prayer
Join us every Wednesday evening March 8-April 5.
In our baptismal covenant, we vow to continue in the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of the bread, and in prayer. Our catechism defines prayer as “responding to God, by thought and by deeds, with or without words.” We are, as a Church, called to a life of prayer, but that can be made manifest in myriad ways. Join us for a five-week study in Lent as we reflect on our calling to a life of prayer from a variety of viewpoints. Our lectures will range from the topic of intercessory prayer, to prayer within the monastic life, to even Jewish prayer practices that can influence and enrich our own, and much more. Some of our guests include our own The Rev. Paul Bradshaw, Emeritus faculty at Notre Dame, specializing in liturgical studies; Rabbi Ariel Boxman, Rabbi-Educator at Temple Shalom; and Adam White, Minister of Discipleship at Grace Methodist, and a Prior at the Missional Wisdom Foundation. By reflecting together about both the challenges and joys of prayer, and praying together weekly through Eucharist and evening prayer, we can be formed as a community and given direction in our common prayer life, as well as how we pray when we are alone.
