What the World Needs Now

Darrah Bryans leading


When disasters happen, earthquakes, mass shootings, a cancer diagnosis, we often say that we will keep those harmed in our thoughts and prayers. This is a nice thought, but the words feel empty. This Sunday we will be challenging ourselves to reconceptualize the idea of prayer: how can we keep prayer from feeling empty, is it still prayer if we don’t believe in god, what would meaningful prayer look like?
