The Beauty of Written Prayers and Liturgies with Kayla Craig | Ep. 149

Episode 149

Liturgy. You may have heard this word before. Maybe you’ve been to a liturgical service where the congregation followed a particular order of events. Or maybe your church incorporates liturgical prayers where everyone says a written prayer out loud together. Or maybe you’ve seen some written prayers on Instagram. Kayla Craig is a beautiful voice on many different platforms, and she offers wonderful modern liturgies for parents. Her handle is @liturgiesforparents and she also wrote a book called To Light Their Way: A Collection of Prayers and Liturgies for Parents. But this conversation isn’t just for parents. We talk about liturgies in general and how we can embrace them in our day to day lives. We really do think this conversation will be edifying no matter what season of life you’re in! Be sure to follow Kayla on IG at @kayla_craig and @liturgiesforparents!
