Kevin and Jill tackle the prayer questions so many of us are thinking, but often don't talk about. This week "what's the point of silence?" - especially in a world that needs so much ACTION!
This is the last week at Eucharist Church we're going to be interviewing people who inspire us, and who we think are full of wisdom.
Hopefully more wisdom to come, but not in interviews!
This week we get to talk to Sue Hamilton, a spiritual director of spiritual directors, and she had so much goodness to share with us!
The world Jesus lived in was ruled over by the Roman Empire. Nearly a millennium before Jesus, there lived a man named Jonah.
And the world of Jonah had it’s own Empire: the Assyrians.
And the capital city of Assyria? Nineveh.
As we dive into the text of Jonah, we also dive into the world he inhabited, and it is most certainly a violent, depraved, and wicked world.
Two side notes:
1) The quality of the recording this week is… subpar. It’s listenable, but not great. Listen at your own risk!
2) This sermon has a fairly large audio clip from Dan Carlin’s “Hardcore History” - the clip is about 10 minutes, but the full episode comes in at over an hour. It’s ABSOLUTELY worth listening to if you want to understand more about the Assyrians and the city of Nineveh.

Dan, you are incredibly smart, interesting, and talented. Please don’t sue our little church. xoxo
Jill Weber, of the Greater Ontario House of Prayer, joined us to talk about prayer, breathing, and simple everyday disciplines for ordinary disciples!
Her teaching is designed to include moments of pause and prayer, so please don’t rush through it, and feel free to take part in the activities… even if you’re doing the dishes or driving or cleaning!They don’t require you to close your eyes or anything.
There is also a gorgeous banjo/loud voiced hymn at the one hour mark.
