St. Alban’s, meeting at Theatre Arlington, is offering Pray All Ways, a retreat on prayer practices. The first session on Saturday, March 26 from 9 am to noon, will explore praying with beads. The Rev. Kevin Johnson explains:
For millennia beads have been used as a tool to aid in prayer. For this Lenten mini-retreat, come create your own set of special prayer beads while learning about Christianity’s rich history of using them.
Lent is an excellent time to explore practices that may enrich and support habits of prayer. Each session will look at a different prayer practice – centering prayer, prayer through music, prayer through art, etc. – with time to use that practice and discuss it. In the first session participants also will organize the various sessions according to their interest in the various practices offered.
This introduction to prayer is open to all. Register with Dave Burrows at 817-264-3083, and bring $10 for supplies. Participants will meet in the Education Building of Theatre Arlington, located at 316 W. Main St. in Arlington.
