 As we head into a year-long study of prayer with Rev. David and Rev. Susan, it seems like a good time to pause on our tour of the library, at the section dealing with prayer.  You will find resources here for almost any type of spiritual practice – prayer, yes, but also many other methods of being with the holy.  We have books on meditation, journaling, walking, yoga, chanting, fasting, use of incense, drumming and more.  We have books on the spirituality of gardening, of baking bread, of knitting and crocheting.  You can learn how to make a sacred space within your home or in the garden.  You can read prayers written by those of great faith, experience the mandalas of Hildegarde of Bingen and explore how prayer is practiced in other faiths.  You can learn the philosophy behind walking the labyrinth or how to open your soul on the mountain top.

At first I was surprised to hear our study on Sunday mornings would take a year.  Now I’m wondering if a year is long enough.
