Prayer in Uncertainty

As many of you know, Katie Lancaster spent the last two years studying Prayer in Uncertainty as part of a study grant from the Louisville Institute. Her research brings together the rich narratives of scripture, the long history of Christian poets and mystics, and the expansive field of theopoetics. Her inquiry was prompted by the sudden global uncertainties of pandemic, and asks how the unforeseen uncertainties in our daily and communal lives might give rise to a deep longing for the divine who is at once hidden and revealed. As she studied prayer, she wrote daily devotionals on the topic of prayer, many of which can be found archived by theme: An Alphabet of Prayer100 Days of Psalms and PrayersMy Neighbors’ Prayer.

This Monday, November 7 at 7 p.m., join friends and neighbors in the Culbertson Room where Katie will share experiences of her project: Prayer in Uncertainty, and how she’s applying the new knowledge to her real-life situations and problems. This program is in-person and livestreamed.
