Formation This Fall

I don’t know about you, but I never imagined that we would be away from our building this long. I can’t wait to get back together again! I miss you! I also never imagined that I would need to know all the things I’ve learned in the last few months....

A Prayer of Examen

We talk a lot these days about trying to stay grounded, to be mindful, to practice gratitude, to notice the things that bring us joy, and to pay attention to the work of the Spirit in and among us. That’s a tall order! What if we don’t know what grounds...

Prayers of Lament

The writer of Ecclesiastes reminds there is a time for everything… including things we think of as “unpleasant” or “unfaithful” like weeping, mourning, or breaking apart.  (Eccl. 3:1-8).
