an Ongoing Friday class
Revs. Paul & Elizabeth are leading (not teaching!) a
class on multiple ways of praying using Richard Foster’s
book Prayer: Finding the Heart’s True Home.
A few of the many types of prayer experienced are
The Prayer of Rest, The Prayer of Relinquishment,
Meditative Prayer, Contemplative Prayer, Petitionary
Prayer, Healing Prayer, and The Prayer of Suffering.
Each week we will read a chapter in Foster’s book,
practice the type of prayer mentioned throughout the
week, and then share our prayer experiences with each
other during that week’s class. Thus, we will all be
teachers to one another!
Every First Sunday
Healing Prayer is available after
the worship service the first
Sunday every month, for yourself
or a loved one.
