Session outline: Prayer for All Seasons
How can we develop a life of prayer attuned to the changing circumstances we find ourselves in? What does it mean for each of us to deepen our ‘prayer life’? This session will approach these questions by drawing on a wide range of Christian experience and tradition, informed by the conviction that our life of prayer needs to be nourished by Word and Sacrament, and animated by God’s Holy Spirit.
