As you know from my journal post God With Us last December 25th, when it comes to celebrating birthdays – at least my own – less is more. I simply don’t like the attention and fuss. However, today is different. That’s because today, August 25, 2017, Nexus Prayer celebrates two special events: an anniversary and a birthday.
First, it’s a special day because it was exactly two years ago today that I began my daily, intensive, one-year of research and study of Psalm 46 – with special attention given to verse 10. Hard to believe two years have passed. What a special, rewarding, and wonder-filled journey these past 48 months have been for me. But secondly, this day is also special because it’s not just an anniversary, but also a birthday as Nexus Prayer’s ministry and website turn one-year old today.
Celebration is in order! And what better way to celebrate than by taking this opportunity to announce that beginning Sunday, September 10, 2017 Nexus Prayer will be offered at least twice a week – Sunday mornings and Thursday afternoons – at Saint Dunstan’s Episcopal Church in Houston.
SUNDAY | 10:15 a.m. | Bentley Education Center | Room 315
Meeting every Sunday between worship services, our prayer group will gather for fellowship, a brief lesson from Psalm 46, a 10 minutes Nexus Prayer, and an optional Q&A session. The class is conveniently scheduled immediately after the 9:00, and right before the 11:00 worship services. Although attendance is not required, I encourage you to arrive early or remain after the Nexus Prayer gathering to attend the worship service that works best for your schedule.
THURSDAY | 12:30 p.m. | Canterbury Chapel
Immediately following the Holy Eucharist Service that meets every Thursday at noon in the Canterbury Chapel, all are invited to remain an additional 15-30 minutes for Nexus Prayer. Our actual prayer session follows a brief welcome and quick overview of the Five Steps of Nexus Prayer. The Canterbury Chapel (I consider it a sacred space) is both a beautiful and inspiring setting to “Be still, and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10
So, Happy Birthiversary Nexus Prayer! Thank you for reading this post and celebrating this moment in time with me, but don’t just take my word for it. Why not come visit and experience Nexus Prayer for yourself? Our meetings are informal, free, and welcoming of all.
Attend once, or join us every week, but please come join us anytime you are able. Scheduling conflicts? No problem! Nexus Prayer can be done anywhere in as little as five minutes a day, and The Steps are easy to learn. Questions? Feel free to contact me anytime.
