The Front Page

Welcome to the Front Page, the digital cover of the Wayne Press.  Here we will share with you things that can't be captured in our newsletter--videos, music, color photographs--as well as articles that reflect on faith and life.  

 

Lent 3.13

This week the blog will focus on prayer.  There are a million ways to pray and a million ways to think about prayer.  I believe that how we pray or when we pray doesn't matter to God.  What matters is that we pray.  God desires to be in relationship with us and in conversation with us.  A friend shared this refleciton on prayer with me and I wanted to share it with you.


Prayer Is Being Silent
by Richard Rohr

Prayer is largely just being silent: holding the tension instead of even talking it through, offering the moment instead of fixing it by words and ideas, loving reality as it is instead of understanding it fully. We must not push the river, we must just trust that we are really in the river, and God is the current.

That may be impractical, but the way of faith is not the way of efficiency. So much of life is just a matter of listening and waiting, and enjoying the expansiveness that comes from such willingness to hold. 


Peace,
Laurie
