4 Steps to Better Prayer: An Adult Forum Series for Lent
Sundays, 10:15 a.m., Nourse Hall
Lent is traditionally a time for Christians to fast and pray in preparation for Easter. Many of us are very deliberate in finding ways to fast during Lent, such as giving up favorite foods or activities and donating to those less fortunate. But when is the last time we took time during Lent to improve our prayer life? Our Adult Forums for the first four Sundays of Lent will both present different approaches to prayer and provide practical “how to” instruction on implementing them into our devotional life.
Step 2 - Meditative Prayer (Sunday, February 25)
