Daily Prayer :: Wind
This site is for everyone who is taking their next steps of faith or first steps into a relationship with Circle of Hope. It can be used on its own or in conjunction with The Way of Jesus website found here.
▶ This week Daily Prayer :: Wind explores our proverb Generating justice and hope in our neighborhood must be at the heart of us. The blog entries will be covering a host of topics/people including Henri Nouwen, Shane Claiborne, anti-racism, MLK Jr., community, capitalism, and much more. Check out our complete proverbs here.
Daily Prayer :: Water
At this site we will enjoy many different voices who are being asked to take a week or two at a time to lead us. They may have a theme to follow at times, especially when the pastors are taking their turns, they may lead us through a book, or just give us what they think we need. It can be used on its own or in conjunction with our Way of Jesus website found here.
▶ Daily Prayer :: Water explores Zechariah. This set of daily prayers follows the book Longing for God in an Age of Discouragement: The Gospel According to Zechariah by Bryan R. Gregory.
