The Small Church
“In a big world, the small church has remained intimate. In a fast world, the small church has remained steady. In an expensive world, the small church has remained plain. In a complex world, the small church has remained simple. In a rational world, the small church has kept feeling. In a mobile world, the small church has been an anchor. In an anonymous world, the small church calls us by name.”

We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you,

“In a contemplative sense, prayer is not something that you do, but is instead a relationship between you and the Divine Indwelling. To pray is to accept God’s invitation to turn your mind and heart inward and open to the realization that you are not separate from God. God is always with you, whether you know it or not.” from the Introduction
