This Sunday the sermon is going to be about prayer and Im going to be using these two resources:
"50 Ways to Pray: Practices from Many Traditions and Times" by Tersea A. Blythe
"I am Listening: Daily Devotions for Lent" Edited by Betty Lynn Schwab, published by the United Church of Canada.
and here are two more books worth checking out on this topic
"Women's Uncommon Prayers: Our Lives Revealed, Nurtured and Celebrated" Editors Elizabeth Rankin Geitz, Marjorie A. Burke and Ann Smith
"Surprise Around the Bend: 50 Adventurous Walkers" by Richard A. Hasler.
For those of you who notice such things, I normally follow the lectionary but today I have headed out on my own deciding to talk about prayer. There is so much to say on this topic I may return to it again if there is popular demand.
