Show Notes

[3:50] Who was Eve­lyn Underhill?

[10:00] Tell me a lit­tle bit about her prayer book pri­or to your vis­it at the retreat house.

[20:55] She does some­thing bold, tak­ing a prayer from some great Saint and adding her own lines, mak­ing her own con­tri­bu­tion to it. I found that real­ly spe­cial to get to have both people’s prayers together.

[24:44] Could you spec­u­late what Eve­lyn might want peo­ple to do with this book?

[29:45] One of the things I found excit­ing is, a num­ber of the people’s prayers that she quotes I knew the names; but there were a bunch of them I don’t. And you give a lit­tle descrip­tion per­son at the end, and I thought, New friends to explore!” 

[30:55 ] Do you keep a prayer book?

[31:35 ] I’ve been col­lect­ing prayers for years, my own and oth­ers. And I love the idea of curat­ing your own col­lec­tion, that they all mean some­thing to you.
