In February we will welcome Rev. Callie Swanlund to lead a weekend retreat intended to help make one’s Lenten season intentional and meaningful. Using the work of Brene Brown, founder of The Daring Way, participants will take a deep look at themselves and their walk with Christ as they prepare for the upcoming season of Lent. More details to come, but for now, save the date: the weekend of February 23.
Resources for Prayer
In October and November, the Rev. Canon Dr. Thomas Williams led a class on the book “Inwardly Digest” by Derek Olsen. This class explored how the patterns of life laid out in The Book of Common Prayer serve as a guide to the spiritual life, so that we might connect back to the God who calls each of us by name and that we might love as God loves us.
As a result of that class, the Rev. Canon Dr. Thomas Williams has gathered a list of resources for prayer:
Life in Christ, Julia Gatta
Saint Augustine's Prayer Book, David Cobb and Derek Olsen
Praying Our Days, Frank Griswold
Centering Prayer, M. Basil Pennington
The Examen Prayer, Timothy Gallagher
Daily prayer is part of life for the Cathedral community. All are invited to join in and experience pop-up prayers with Canon Katie Churchwell. Canon Katie Churchwell leads these on her Facebook page and they take a variety of forms, from a simple invitation to leave a prayer request to more interactive prayers.
