Lectionary & Prayer

“Prayer is just talking with someone who’s already talking to you.” – Robert Farrar Capon

The cornerstone of our faith is prayer — a daily conversation with God. Prayer can take on myriad forms, whether it’s silent meditation, reading through scripture, or any other activity performed with intention and mindfulness.

We hope that these resources will help you be in conversation with God on a daily basis!
