The Practice of Prayer  – Lead by Lisa Schrott
Meets in James Chapel
Did you know Martin Luther wrote “A Simple Way to Pray” in 1535 when his barber asked for practical guidance on prayer? And that confessions penned during the Reformation era expanded our understanding prayer outside of the worship service? During this 10-week class, we will look at a reformed understanding of prayer – historically and in contemporary practice. Interspersed will be the opportunities to engage with various types of prayer practices including intercessory prayer, centering prayer, movement prayers, meditation, praying with art and prayer beads.
