During service this morning we discussed spiritual practices that bring us closer to the divine. One such practice is the contemplative "Jesus Prayer."It is a practice that has roots back to the Byzantine era and desert ascetics in Egypt.
Below is a film about the history, practice and mystery of The Jesus Prayer. Dr. Norris J. Chumley and the Very Rev. Dr. John McGuckin travel to monasteries in Egypt, Mt. Sinai, Transylvania, and Russia among others seeking to learn more about this prayer and how it can deepen our conversation with God.
