Rev. Kim Barker-Brugman serves as guide for these evenings of prayer. Kim is a pastor, spiritual director and gifted retreat leader with expertise in labyrinths. Kim will incorporate a variety of prayer forms and contemplative practices in these times of intercession and being present with the Presence in compassionate prayers “mean more than words can say.” And… while there are monthly themes/places for focusing prayers, Kim will also include current, immediate and other global concerns each month.
