Invitation to a Septuagint of Prayer

Posted on Posted in Practicalities

While only only two of us are making this whole pilgrimage on foot, the truth of a pilgrimage is always found in the prayerful spirit and intention, not primarily in the physical movement. So that’s why we’d like to invite you to join us in this pilgrimage, truly in spirit if not actually on foot.

Each day of our seventy days we will be meditating on a short passage of Scripture that pertains somehow to the unity of the church. These verses will be the basis of our daily prayers. You can sign up here to receive these verses in your inbox every day and make them the center of your own scriptural meditations as well.

We ask you: please commit yourself to prayer for the unity of the church over the next seventy days. Pray with us wherever you are as we pray while we walk. Internalize this pilgrimage as your own path, seeking out the way to knitting back together the broken body of Christ. Make this “septuagint” (the Greek word for seventy, also the name of the ancient Greek translation of the Old Testament) of prayer your own.

For our Lord himself prayed for this and promised to answer our own prayers whenever we pray together in his name.

  1. I’ve shared your blog with the EFM group that I’m mentoring. We will be in prayer for you and will be using your journey to work on theological reflections in the coming months. Thank you so much for sharing your journey with us.

  2. Sarah and Andrew,

    Hi! Have lost your email address as we met at Holden. If you have mine, it would be great to hear from you. Just heard about your walking on the ELCA news service. How neat! How is your boy? Just got back from WA State. Am now serving as a priest in an Episcopal Church and loving it.
    Blessings in your travels-
    Amy+
