Prayer Request

"how to become so much like Jesus that our very way of life comforts the world's brokenhearted and confronts the world's broken systems ----is a key question for all who seek authentic, faithful belonging." ----Becoming the Authentic Church by N.Gordon Cosby and Kayla McClurg

Today, members of my Spiritual Support Group are coming for a retreat at the suburban parish where I serve. Please keep this diverse, committed group in your prayers. We have been meeting together weekly for a number of years and are part of a movement that is emerging around the Church of the Savior communities in Washington, DC. The above quote describes well the yearning for authentic community that we seek.

I applaud anyone who seeks a different, deeper way of fostering friendship and community. We live what can often seem like a very isolating existence. I hear rave reviews of Netflix, for example, but I wonder if that kind of thing is doing much to bring people together.
