This is a subject that often causes difficulties for Christians. However it’s not supposed to be like that, is it? Many of us have a rather narrow view of what prayer is, and I think that is where some of the difficulties arise.
Prayer is really about communication with God, and there are so many different ways of praying. If you are interested in exploring this subject, and finding new ways to pray, then consider coming to Bishop Mark’s Archdeaconry School of prayer. That seems to me to be a rather ‘heavy’ sounding title, but it will be an interesting morning with chances to take part in some different workshops led by clergy from this area. Last year’s session was very successful and this year’s promises to be worthwhile too.
It will be held on Saturday October 11th 9.30am to 1.30pm at St Martin’s Castleton. I will be leading a couple of sessions, and I have a few spaces in the car if you would like to come with me.
