For the Living of These Days:
Prayers for a Troubled World
This is a collection of Joan Kavanaugh's post-9/11 public pastoral prayers delivered at The Riverside Church in New York City. Written with a "newspaper in one hand and Bible in the other," they address the issues of human struggle and world crisis that have touched all of our lives in this era of terrorism, anxiety, and global conflict.
Prophetic and pastoral, the prayers focus on contemporary themes of conflict, violence, poverty, racism, injustice, hope, and human longing from spiritual, psychological, and biblical perspectives. They are a resource for all who want to deepen their faith as they face a world deep in turmoil.
"The remarkable thing about these prayers is the way they chronicle signal events impacting the life of the church, the nation, and the global community."
—From the Foreword by Rev. Dr. James A. Forbes Jr., Senior Minister Emeritus of The Riverside Church
Rev. Joan L. Kavanaugh, will be with us in worship next Sunday, December 16th, and will be signing copies of the book after worship. Copies of the book are available in the Visitors Center.
