PRAY THE NEWS

INTERACTIVE SITE. I appreciate the creative and highly useful website of the Carmelites of Indianapolis. Their site, called "Pray the News," offers interactive ways to participate with them in their intercession regarding events local and global.

MINDFULNESS. Their "course to mindfulness" is quite engaging. I can imagine that this site can be very helpful to anyone, especially to those who have all but abandoned prayer or reduced it--or have had it reduced for them--to a dull routine.

PODCASTS. The sisters have also ventured into podcasting, with a few podcasts available on their http://www.praythenews.com/ site.

NEWSPAPER & BIBLE. I can't remember which theologian recommended that we pray with the newspaper in one hand and the Bible in the other. These folks have taken that rather seriously, focused their efforts, and made available a resource everyone can use.

  1. Thank you for the "Pray the News" site. I love it. I'm sure I will be on it daily.

    I think the theologian who said to have the Bible in one hand and the paper in another was Barth.
