on the map

A few weeks ago, as part of this year’s Growing Season, I invited the congregations to make a prayer map. The idea was to map out the various aspects of your life — people, places, projects, concerns — to act as a visual means of prayer. I also asked people to draw a map they were willing to share, so that we can put together a Prayer Book for each congregation so that when we pray for each other, we can pray with greater focus and depth.

A few people jumped at the idea — forming photo collages, flow charts, mind maps. But most of the congregation seem to have gone into hiding. Well, I’ll admit: I didn’t get to it at first either. But now I have. So I offer this as a reminder, or as a suggestion for those further afield.

Some of you may find yourself on this. Forgive the lack of accurate representation.

  1. Pardon my genuine ignorance but what is the growing season? Liturgical or horticultural?
