“Our congregation has been without a minister for almost a year now. However, it has been a good experience of pulling together. Everyone has stepped up to help in so many ways – some in worship leadership, some in reading/leading a service someone else has prepared, some reading scripture/prayers, visiting and leading worship at the nursing home … Many of us have been grateful for this time, for the deepening of our community. 
For me, leading and participating in a Prayer Bench Lenten Small Group Study has been a significant part of this. The leader’s guide was easy to follow and led those of us who participated into an experience of contemplative community. Several people remarked that it was a ‘different way of doing Bible study’! and all were very appreciative.”

“We are not alone when we subscribe to Prayer Bench. Prayer Bench is like balm for the spirit. 

Sally Meyer D.M.

“It is hard to find good spiritual material and you are definitely filling a badly needed area in my life.  Blessings on your work.” 
Rev. Kate Young

We find the topics (in the Small Group Studies) relevant and encouraging. I especially like the audio part. The group is interested to hear another perspective. The audio leads to good discussion. Your questions help the participants to go deeper.

“I enjoyed the timing of the emails and that they could be broken up into daily parts or longer parts as time allowed. Having spiritual practices (especially the artistic choices) were very helpful and assisted me to learn that some of these things I enjoy doing can be used spiritually.”
