At All Saints' Church we gather to know 
Jesus Christ and make Him known.

The Way of Love
Practices for a Jesus-Centered Life

This Sunday - PRAY

I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord's holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge- that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. - Ephesians 3:17-19, NIV

C.S. Lewis noted, the world is "crowded" with God: "We may ignore, but we can nowhere evade the presence of God, who walks everywhere..." Prayer is, in some regard, the ways in which we remember and attend to the presence of God. There are as many ways of praying as there are people, but there are some ways that we will commend this week - Praying the Daily Office, praying with Scripture, Centering prayer, praying without words, and more. Join us this week as we consider how to deepen our prayer lives as we walk "The Way of Love" during this season of Lent.

Also...join us this Sunday at 9:00 am for an opportunity to reflect together on the Way of Love practices.
