Fascinating! So glad to find this on the feed Monday morning, the toughest day to pray for this preacher because I am so thoroughly exhausted from Sunday. Why pray? For the relationship with God, and the assurance that sometimes the Creator of the universe does get through my thick skull to remind me that some of the boxes I shove God into are just ridiculous (not unlike Kelly’s experience in this video here).

I pray for clarity. For peace. To know God’s love in comfortable silences. To be healed by the presence of Jesus. To be inspired to make good choices through the guidance of the Holy Spirit. I pray because prayer changes me, and makes me more compassionate toward my fellow children of God.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
