Would you believe me if I told you that George Herbert — a 17th century poet — had ideas about prayer that you've never considered before? Ideas and images so new and revolutionary, we could spend an entire show parsing just one of his poems about prayer? Well, that's exactly what's happening this week on your favorite on-the-air book club! Join Lori and Alice as they examine each image from the poem "Prayer (I)" and reflect on the meaning of prayer in their own lives. What better time than Lent to take a good look at your own prayer life?!
