Jerry May is one of my favorite writers on spiritual life. Here is a link to one of his articles on prayer that he wrote in 1984 when I was just beginning to read about such things. His passing a number of years of ago has left a void in the contemplative world that is noticeable to me.

As I have opportunity at the end of the month to help facilitate a Shalem Retreat on Group Spiritual Direction at the St. John’s Guesthouse, I guess I am feeling a little nostalgic about the gifts I have received from the Shalem community in Washington DC in years past.

I hope you enjoy the article!
