Riding the Dragon of Prayer


Margaret Mitchell wrote: “Every problem has two handles. You can grab it by the handle of fear or the handle of hope.” Those problems are like dragons that can lead us on a dark journey. They bedevil us, our families, our churches, and our societies. This class will focus on the ABCs of a fearless and hopeful prayer life in the midst of the particular dragons stomping within us and within those whom we love or are called to pray for, with the hope that we might become co-creators of the light and peace of Christ in the midst of the darkness.

Led by Rev. Kathy Trevino
