Light for the Journey: Morning and Evening Prayers for Living Into God's World
A Prayer Resource for Groups and Individuals
Christina and Tom Sine live is a small intentional community in Seattle called the Mustard Seed House. The members of the household seek to live the values of God's kingdom with a spirituality rooted in rhythms of work, prayer, hospitality, celebration, and relationship. This week-long set of morning and evening prayers has been a foundational part of the rhythm of life at MSH for a long while. And, they want to share it with you.
"In the history of Christian formation literature, it has consistently been the small volume that has conveyed the greatest worth. that principle nowhere holds more true that it does here. Like the light which its title references, this manual, in its succinctness, travels broadly and illumines perfectly. Presenting both assigned prayers for each day of the week and also rich instruction in how the Christian forms a life of prayer, Sine speaks to us gently, but authoritatively. There is, in all of this, a poignancy as well. We understand that Sine is writing to us not about some theory, but out of experience and about the same sure knowledge of a life of prayer fully lived out. Like every wise Christian it is in community that Christians pray most formatively and in community that we must seek to pray."
