New Anglican Rosary Blog August 16, 2008Posted by brnathan in : anglican prayer beads, anglican rosary, Blogs , add a comment
Honouring the ways in which lives have been touched through experiences of making and using Anglican Rosaries
After 5 years of facilitating workshops on making and using Anglican Rosaries (Anglican Prayer Beads) I decided it was time to stop talking about developing an online resource for people interested in making and using Anglican Rosaries and do it.
During prayer bead workshops time is given to allow participants to begin using the Anglican Rosary format to get intouch with their own pray-er, the spirit that prays within us all. Out of this comes some very rich expressions of connection and response to God through prayer in the form of prayers for use with the Anglican Rosary. I am always appreciative and profoundly impressed by the level of energy people put into this segment of the workshops.
I also hear numerous stories of the ways in which people’s lives have been touched by participating in a workshop or in their sharing of their experiences with others, often making and sharing Rosaries with friends, partners and even strangers. These rich stories give expression to the ways in which people’s lives have been enriched through offering others a tangible way to help people get intouch with or deepen their relationship with God.
The Anglican Rosary Blog has been conceived as a means of honouring the ways in which lives have been touched through experiences of making and using Anglican Rosaries. It is a collection of stories, examples of prayers, background material on prayer beads, and resources for making and using Anglican prayer beads. As a blog, it is designed to be interactive so if you have an interest in the making and use of Rosaries or Prayer Beads in the Anglican church please visit the Anglican Rosary Blog or email Br Nathan-James ssf.
