Praying with Our Hands

Many traditions teach that the body mediates the spirit.  Hands, in particular, can express invitation, rejection, consolation, disdain; hands can send a curse or a blessing.  In our hands, prayer and intention become visible.

Author Jon Sweeney is one of the presenters at the Casagrande Interfaith Institute at Wisdom House
on October 28-30, 2011.  The theme of the Institute is "Prayer" in the Christian, Jewish, and Muslim traditions. Visit The Wisdom House Program Calendar for Interfaith Institute information.

An interview on Jon Sweeney's book, "Praying with Our Hands" was recorded in Hartford for WRCH 100.5 FM radio.
