This Advent, I've taken a version of The Jesus Prayer into my meditation practice each morning. I hope not to offend my Orthodox friends in adjusting the prayer a bit...but I find the version here to be meaningful and dear. And it brings me, morning by morning, into his presence. I suppose I'm a geek (and perhaps a strange and unruly ecumenist)--but I'm also finding comfort in the rosary (above) as I say my Orthodox (ish) prayer. Go figure.
