Homegrown Prayer—Day 28: June 28

By The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster I was trying to find a prayer by Søren Kierkegaard, nineteenth century Danish poet theologian whose existential writings ask some of the most enduring human questions. Sure enough an entire collection of prayers by Kierkegaard has been published, but in my search I stumbled across the above quote: [...]
