Daily Prayer 365 Blog Roll

Written by: Julia Smolucha

A hope grew at Kenilworth Union—that we might be transformed by the daily rhythm of practicing our faith. Maybe the season of Lent would be a good time to experiment. Maybe a few people would join us. When 20 people became 50, we were encouraged. After Lent, the dream grew, 50 became 100, and interest is still growing. We are confident that the practice of daily devotional at Kenilworth Union has the potential to be life-giving to many. What will the next season of spiritual practice bring? What renewal, growth, or transformation might happen within you and within our collective community when we begin our day with a prayer, scripture, or poetry? We invite you to this daily practice by signing up for our email here or by following along on Facebook or Instagram.

Please consider praying with us on Sunday and at our Tuesday Mid-Day Prayer worship.

The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
