Ep. 36 : A Prayer for Martin Luther King Jr. Day

In the United States, we honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the third Monday of January. Join us in reflecting upon his subversive teachings, moving beyond the out-of-context quotes and instead challenging ourselves to do the costly work of justice. May the God of truth continue to give us prophetic imagination, so that we may envision and co-create an equitable world for all. You can check out Liturgies for Parents on Instagram for more prayers and encouragement and pick up your own copy of To Light Their Way wherever books are sold. For glimpses of Kayla’s experiences with parenting and faith, find her on Instag ram at @kayla_craig. Read More

In a weary world, Liturgies for Parents offers a nuanced and nurturing moment of reprieve, inviting all who are raising kids to breathe and remember that God is with you. Liturgies for Parents will leave you feeling a bit more centered -- and a bit more rooted in God's big love for you, your family, and your neighbors, too.
