Wrong Way to Pray

July 24th, 2016

By: Laura Marie Piotrowicz

Topic: Everyday Christianity

I used to think that there was no ‘wrong’ way to pray, but am now thinking there’s a misconception about what prayer actually is.

Bear ye one another’s burdens

July 21st, 2016

By: Trevor Freeman

Topic: Citizens of Heaven

The weight of General Synod

July 20th, 2016

By: The Rev. Monique Stone

Topic: Simple and Not So Simple

General Synod 2016 will forever impact the journey of many. It may never be forgotten, especially by those who sat for hour upon hour at any of the tables in that plenary room. Now, as it has come to an end, its weight will enter communities across the country who will carry the joy and the challenge of its burden.

Topic: Pop Culture Piety

That’s disgraceful

July 17th, 2016

By: Laura Marie Piotrowicz

Topic: Everyday Christianity

Overcoming our own preferences and judgements, I pray we all might see others less as ‘disgraceful’ and more as grace-filled.

A movement of the heart

July 3rd, 2016

By: Laura Marie Piotrowicz

Topic: Everyday Christianity

As we pray for the forthcoming General Synod, may we be intentional that our prayers are a faithful movement of the heart.
