First off, thank you so much again for your excitement and readership as I share more about my conversations around prayer. I had another great conversation last week that I am currently working on sharing with you, in between wrapping gifts and procrastinating on housework. In the meantime, I have a really cool resource I wanted to share with you as I am working on my next post.
One of my favorite podcasts is called The Liturgists (shout out to my small group who introduced me to this awesome series!). It's curated by Michael Gungor (yes, THAT Gungor) and Mike McHargue. Their podcasts present a really comprehensive view on a variety of faith-grounded subjects, such as church unity and the role of doubt in our beliefs. They provide a variety of perspectives in their recordings, including tackling the subjects from the lenses of music, art, and science.
Anyway, they have an episode on meditation that was recommended to me by two separate people in some of my initial conversations. Over the weekend, I had a chance to listen to the recording and wanted to share the link with anyone who has been following along with these posts. It provides some great evidence for the healing benefits of prayer and meditation and some tips on how to get started. You can listen to the recording HERE.
Coincidentally (or not), just yesterday I had a sponsored Instagram post come across my feed for an app on meditation. I just downloaded it this morning and hope to work through their first series of 10-minute meditations during some of my holiday vacation. I'll keep you posted on my thoughts!
I would love to connect with more of you after the holidays to discuss your perspectives on prayer. Please email or message me if you're interested in getting together! Thanks again for reading.
