This is an update as we transition from summer to the fall. Work with Fr Laird's A Sunlit Absence will resume soon. In the between weeks, Josh is working to recruit and set up the School of Prayer in in-person and perhaps also in distance learning formats. Much of this episode is focused on a guided prayer through questions of racism. We begin with a selection of readings from the first two chapters of Dr King's collection of sermons, Strength to Love. Then Josh presents an essay he recently wrote as a produced prayer meditation on white supremacy. The essay can be found on the Invitation website. Information about the School of Prayer along with video updates can be found:https://www.invitationpodcast.org/school-of-prayer Thanks for listening! Be blessed even in the midst of this difficult time!
