Pastor Eric leads us in an exploration of the meaning of prayer in various traditions, and to different people individually. Touching on people’s personal experience with prayer, as well as how the meaning of prayer itself may vary from person to person, we look not only at the differences, but also what community-based prayer, the religion-based, and personal prayer all have in common. a lively discussion ensues. See the attached handouts to follow along. I new prospective student named James also joined us for this session, and stayed for the afternoon, taking an active part in the discussion.
