Reimagining Your Sacred Rhythms of Prayer

May 12 | 1:30-3 EST | Rev. Karen Cook & Rev. Dr. Brenda Buckwell





Zoom fatigue. Decision fatigue. Compassion fatigue. It’s been a challenging year in so many ways. This Mini focuses on helping you and your team discover/rediscover a sacred rhythm of personal prayer. A sacred rhythm of prayer will help you arrange your life for spiritual transformation. Establishing a sacred rhythm could be one of the most important choices to move into this next season of ministry and life.
