Prayer and Purpose
Most of us would probably like to work with a deeper sense of purpose and mission; maybe prayer can help. This episode provides an example from the life of Jesus and begins with a story about a time when he went off and prayed by himself in the early morning hours. You might find it has something important to say about a possible connection between prayer and the sense of purpose or mission we bring to our work. In this context we also discuss receptive prayer as a helpful spiritual practice. The story is from the Biblical book of Mark, Chapter 1 verses 35-39. (Time: 7:20)
