Background: Anglican Prayer Beads are a relatively new form of prayer, blending the Orthodox Jesus Prayer Rope and the Roman Catholic Rosary. The thirty-three bead design was created by the Rev. Lynn Bauman in the mid-1980s, through the prayerful exploration and discovery of a contemplative prayer group. The use of the rosary or prayer beads helps to bring us into contemplative of meditative prayer—really thinking about and being mindful of praying, of being in the presence of God—by use of mind, body, and spirit. The touching of the fingers on each successive bead is an aid in keeping our mind from wandering, and the rhythm of the prayers leads us more readily into stillness.
Class Details: This class will be held on Saturday, March 4 in Aflriend Hall from 10 AM – 12 PM. Participants will get to make their very own Anglican Prayer Beads. A registration fee of $15 is requested to cover a book and prayer bead supply costs. All are welcome and confidential scholarships are available upon request.
