Parents are the first and most powerful pastors of their own children. For Anglican parents, the Prayer Book is a Rule of Life which unites them in a common life in Christ. Fr. Erlandson shares his experiences with his own family in having family devotions based on the Evening Prayer service of the Book of Common Prayer. He gives not only a vision for parents leading their children in worship but also some very practical guidelines on how to lead family prayer.

  • Hello, I have been alone for 4 years now. I live by myself and miss felame company, but more importantly someone to share my life with.I meet different people each day but feel unsure about reaching out. I always look for ways to help others in my day to life.I would love to meet someone I am attracted to both internally and physically. I feel so sad with Christmas coming as I don’t want to spend another Christmas alone.It may sound shallow. But I am not perfect and don’t want perfect, only perfect for me. I have certain likes and dislikes. Someone I can be just myself with and they with me. But I believe in my heart the person I do choose, if I truly take care of their heart and support their desires to be a better person and help them fulfill their dreams as much as I have many dreams, I think God would be pleased at the end of my life.I would love to have a child, my heart feels so sad when I see couples with children. I know a child is a life commitment and I want to share parenthood.Please pray for me.Thank you!Lawrence F.
