While we believe God is everywhere, recognizing God's presence wherever we are requires deliberate attention. We also recognize that time can feel short or crunched in day-to-day living. So we offer these practices as inspiration for holy moments no matter where you are or how much time you have.
Prayer is intimidating. I’m reminded of this whenever our family gathers for a meal and someone asks, “who’s going to bless the food?” Everybody’s eyes drop. Our bodies get real still. Any sudden movements or eye contact might draw too much attention. We might get called on to pray.
