Course Description

Explore five prayer traditions from church history: the short, frequent prayers of the Desert Fathers; the liturgical collect in the Book of Common Prayer; the Lord’s Prayer as taught by Martin Luther and C. S. Lewis; and the Jesuit and Puritan examen of conscience, as well as their use of imagination in disciplined meditation. Through study, discussion, and music learn to live the rich history of prayer.
