A few weeks ago I preached in my home church on the subject of prayer. It was a basic reminder that we, as Anglicans, have the Book of Common Prayer to help in times of prayer. It is a wonderful tool.

Living Resurrection in Prayer
I was so fortunate to preach at our church, Church of the Apostles, this past weekend. My subject was on the resurrection life and how it impacts prayer. If you haven’t witnessed a more liturgical service, I invite you to watch the entire video. My message begins around the 19:12 mark.
