In anticipation of "rainy days" during this season of outdoor church gatherings, we've created some simple and spacious prayer services to call on when needed. This first "Rainy Day" gathering was created by David Darnell and a handful of others in our Parish community. We encourage you to find a quiet space to meet with God as this video guides you in a 25 minute time of prayer.
This prayer guide walks you through the process of charting your losses in this season then looking with fresh imagination for how God might raise you up to fresh purpose on the other side of pain. We encourage you to take 30 minutes this week and use this worksheet to guide a time of journaling and prayer.
Fasting has been a part of the Judeo-Christian tradition for millenia. We see it used throughout the bible. In fact, Jesus began his ministry with forty days of fasting! Fasting is used for a variety of reasons, one of those reasons being to empty ourselves so to focus more intently on God.
