Praying with the Visioneers

It's the first day of Vacation Bible School and I'm in charge of the prayer station--five rounds of children and youth exploring that there's no right or wrong way to pray; starting each session with contemplative prayer, then journaling, and today a little prayer walk.

My own morning quiet inspired by a word from The Rev. Barbara Taylor to get my day going:

To say I love God but I do not pray much is like saying I love life but I do not breathe much. The only way I have found to survive my shame is to come at the problem from both sides, exploring two distinct possibilities: 1) that prayer is more than my idea of prayer and 2) that some of what I actually do in my life may constitute genuine prayer.
