Prayer booklet stresses discipleship

Sixty people attended the first of a series of luncheon meetings yesterday to experience using ``A Disciple's Prayer Book,'' produced by Native American Episcopalians. The booklet is available from the Congregational Ministries cluster at the Episcopal Church Center.

The 44-page prayer book focuses on gospel-based discipleship said the Rev. John Robertson, missioner of congregational ministries at the church center. ``This resource, with a Bible, is all that's necessary to preach, teach and heal all those who engage the gospel as disciples of Christ. It can be used in our journey toward becoming a church of disciples in mission to all of God's creation,'' he explained.

The booklet contains sets of prayers and Bible readings for morning, noon, early evening and the close of day. It is most suitable for small groups and includes questions for reflection and response to the day's Gospel reading.

Similar luncheon meetings will focus on ``The Church in Africa'' (July 8); ``Striving for Peace and Justice'' (July 10); ``Resources for Educators and Ministers with Young People'' (July 11); ``Fresh Start'' about the first two years of ministry of a congregation and its priest (July 12) and ``Let us Break Bread Together'' onEpiscopalecumenical dialogue (July 13). Each event will have featured speakers.

Tickets for the luncheons must be reserved 48 hours in advance at the Episcopal Church Center booth in the Exhibit Hall. Cost is $14.
