OCCUPY Prayer

Christianity, Religion, Spirituality
Please join us on Sunday, November 27, 2011 in prayer. Pray on this day for all of those in need in the world. Pray for the hungry, the thirsty, the imprisoned. Pray for the abused, the alone, and the frightened. And while we are at it, let's pray for the abusers, the haters, and the warmongerers among us. That they find compassion and love and so be moved to compassionate loving. Pray at any time throughout this day.  November 27 marks the first day of Advent on the Christian calendar.  It symbolizes a preparation for something new.  Let's take this opportunity for prayer in hopes of creating something new. Feel free to RSVP here if you like:  http://www.facebook.com/events/241333599260721/

March 3 Challenge:  Communication.  I wonder what you would have said, that you didn't?  What would you have heard, that you ignored?  Whose voices do you say are "other" and not worthy of hearing?  Whose voices get preferential treatment?    Please add your link in the comments or paste your s
