Simply trying to follow – take 2

From May of 2016 to December of 2019, I wrote a bi-monthly post for Laced With Grace, a Christian devotional site that site has closed down so I have decided to revive a site I started but abandoned a few years ago. My intention is to rewrite, update the 84 posts I did for Laced with Grace as well as share and write some new stuff here on Simply Trying To Follow.

So here goes…

This morning I read this prayer by Richard Rohr. Thought I would share it. The line that jumped out at me was “Knowing you are hearing us better than we are speaking” that is something to ponder.

Any phrases jump out at you?

“O Great Love, thank you for living and loving in us and through us. May all that we do flow from our deep connection with you and all beings. Help us become a community that vulnerably shares each other’s burdens and the weight of glory. Listen to our hearts’ longings for the healing of our world. [Please add your own intentions.] . . . Knowing you are hearing us better than we are speaking, we offer these prayers in all the holy names of God, amen.”


"Telling the next generation" is my passion whether it is life stories, Bible stories, my 9/11 story, manners, ballet or tap terminology. I teach whenever I have opportunity and now I am expressing that passion through writing.
