Petitionary prayer is one of the Christian hard knots to untangle, for not only does it seem that petitionary prayers frequently go unanswered, but we presume that God can and should step in and unilaterally make things right. Karris, in a very readable and provocative book, helpfully challenges petitioners to be the very hands and feet of God in the world, implementing his loving concern for all. Mark Karris gives an important and practical lesson on prayer that will help us combine healing engagement in our broken world with honesty about who God is and how God works in the world.
He impressively merges deep theology and practice. Many other readers will also find this a most helpful meditation on the meaning and power of petitionary prayer.
It is refreshing to find someone courageous and honest enough to investigate one such problem, that of the validity and purpose of prayer for others. This is a book which all thinking Christians should read! Mark Gregory Karris is an ordained pastor, licensed marriage and family therapist, speaker, musician, adjunct professor, and all around biophilic.

Through confirmation God strengthens or increases the work of the Holy Spirit so that we might be equipped and empowered for the Christian life and ministry. Reception and reaffirmation?
Reception is for those who have made adult professions of faith in other Christian traditions. The Bishop prayerfully lays hands on those seeking reception in recognition that they are members of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.

Reaffirmation is for those who have previously been confirmed of received who are returning to active Christian discipleship after a lapse, experiencing a renewal of Christian commitment or have gone through a significant life transition. The act of reaffirmation renews the pledges made to Christ and his Church with prayer and the laying on of hands by the bishop.
For those wishing to be confirmed, received or reaffirmed we will have classes starting in October
