If we could sit down with you over a cup of tea (or coffee) each week, these are the tools and treasures we’d be excited to share with you. We’ll ask a question, share our answers, then invite you to join and share your own tools and treasures on a teatime break.
How has this Lenten season impacted your prayer life?

Candles or Incense as an Act of Centering Prayer
Wearing Prayer Beads
"This year for Lent, I am combining practices of prayer and Sabbath by trading in my watch for a set of wearable prayer beads every Sunday. A visible and tactile reminder to accept the invitations to pray throughout the day and to experience more unfettered time."
Quote from a Sister
"I visited a Benedictine Monastery & Retreat Center in January. One of the sisters shared the story of her call to monasticism. As she described this experience, she said "I had always struggled with prayer, because I only ever thought that you could pray with words. These words have been on my mind this season."
