“Signs of the Times” is taking a week off, to make room for springtime house and yard projects. But I have added some new material to prayer&politiks, including ”Liturgical reform and worship renewal,”  commentary from last weekend’s Alliance of Baptists Convocation; and a new litany for worship, “Adelante—Keep Moving Forward.”

In light of the upcoming “National Day of Prayer” (7 May), see “Prayer: The Intersection of Personal and Social Transformation.

Pass it on.


P.S. Former US President Dwight Eisenhower typically began his cabinet meetings with silent prayer. In the middle of one such meeting, after forgetting to do so, he blurted out, “Oh, g*ddamn it, we forgot the prayer.”
