“Arise, cry out in the night, at the beginning of the night watches! Pour out your heart like water before the presence of the Lord! Lift your hands to him for the lives of your children, who faint for hunger at the head of every street.” Lamentations 2:19
We are broken people in a broken world, but we are also a people of hope. This Lent we are asking:
In what ways can we pray?
How can we embrace others in our prayer?
How can we stand with the broken in our world?
And we will explore the responses each of us might have to these questions.
In our Sunday evening services we will hold out our arms in prayer for what is broken in our world today. We also plan to have a special prayer on the theme during Lent at Morning Prayer and Vespers.
On Thursday evening sessions in Lent, beginning on February 22nd, we invite you to explore four different ways to pray.
22nd and 29th February: Centering prayer, Dr Lynne Scholefield
7th March Creative Prayer, Emily Hollins/Helen Healy
14th March Praying with Art Richard Watts
21st March Praying in solidarity, Peter Stott
