Connection Class Update (January 12)

Spiritual Practices: 

Spiritual practices have helped Christians throughout the centuries to draw near to God, to become more aware of God’s presence, and to focus in our daily life on connecting with God, even in mundane, simple, and everyday tasks. Prayer is one way, one practice, that connects us with God. We pray because Jesus told us and taught us how to, in order to connect with God relationally, and because we often find that we have no other choice (especially when life reminds us that we are not in control of this world). This week, join us (and St. Patrick) in saying this prayer: 

“Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ on my right, Christ on my left, Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down, Christ when I arise, Christ in the heart of every [person] who thinks of me, Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me, Christ in every eye that sees me, Christ in every ear that hears me.”
