Food for Thought – Prayer in the 21st Century
Do you have difficulty finding time to pray? When you do find the time, are you unsure what you should be doing? Do you fear that in your prayers you treat God as a combination of Santa Claus and a life raft, when you know God is so much more?
Come to Hoffman Hall on Sunday, Nov. 2, at 12:15pm and listen to Rev. Elizabeth Nordquist speak about how prayer has changed over time and work with her as she guides us through some ways of praying that are particularly relevant for the 21st century.
Rev. Nordquist will guide us as we look at 3 directions of prayer that continue to be important:
1) Prayer to deepen our understanding of the Mystery we call God;
2) Prayer that clarifies and shapes our understanding of ourselves; and 3) Prayer that extends God’s love and our care in the world.
In discussing these directions, we’ll consider the challenges of praying, as well as look at the ways that prayer shapes our lives.
Be sure to join us in Hoffman Hall! Lunch will be provided for a $10 donation. Call the church office at 310-474-4535 to RSVP.
