A Vigil of Love

Last week, I shared a free contemplative prayer resource to engage with for fourteen days to keep our eyes on the Divine through election season (in the U.S.) I’m creating a Prayer Square for each theme (from this resource) as a way to center and SEE love each day.

Join me to create a visual prayer mosaic

Hi friend, Today, I’m offering a creative resource at my site entitled Prayer Squares. Prayer Squares are a 3-step spiritual practice to engage your innate creativity as your prayer. During these days of quarantine, I invite you to set aside ten to fifteen minutes three times a week to create a visual prayer. This practice is accessible for children and adults. Over the course of four weeks (beginning Monday, April 20th), I invite you into this practice three times a week. After four weeks, you’ll have created twelve Prayer Squares, each with a different theme. Then, cut them out, tape…
