Our featured speaker was Pastor Mary Beth who spoke on the many ways of Praying, and shared "Questions about Prayer" that her mother had written. 

There were six stations set up to demonstrate different ways people pray:
(1) a labyrinth was taped out in the Sanctuary -- to walk as well as pray; a paper labyrinth, to trace with a finger was also provided; (2) prayer bead making; (3) prayer in color; (4) writing God letters; (5) quiet meditation; and (6)  a method of forgiving by writing the name or incident on your palm and washing it away.  We could choose one or several of the stations to sample.

Station 1 - To walk as well as pray.

Station 2 - Prayer bead Making.

Station 3 - Prayer in color.

Station 4 - Writing God letters.

Station 5 - Quiet meditation.

Station 6 - Method of forgiving by writing the name or incident on your palm and washing it away.
