|Prompted by Quaker author Douglas Steere, our Tuesday evening Lenten study was about praying for others. In 1938 Steere wrote, "For when we hold up the life of another before God, when we expose it to God's love ... only then do the walls that separate us from others go down and we sense that we are at bottom all knit together in a great and intimate family." If you want to visualize the power of that statement, Click on the picture above or HERE to watch "The Four Minutes Experiment."Then imagine holding eye contact for 4 minutes with someone for whom you are praying, before you lift them up in prayer.

"Without solitude it is virtually impossible to live a spiritual life ... to bring some solitude into our lives is one of the most necessary but also most difficult disciplines," writes Henri Nouwen in Making All Things New. Excerpts from his book will guide our conversation and prayer, led by Dr. Larry Sansoucie, for the final Lenten Study, next Tuesday, April 4, 7:30 PM.
"If my attitude
be one of fear,
about the one
who has disappointed me;
if I say, "just what
if a fall occurs,
then I know nothing of
