Can we pray together anymore?

In this collection of prayers for Lent, RW Walker explores what difference traditional, queer, and Christ-centred common prayer might make in a chaotic and divided world, a wilderness that seems so filled with death and despair. May these prayers fan a flame of hope in our hearts as we walk the wilderness journey of Jesus--together.

Review quote

'We have a job to do that we are not doing.' With this challenge, Rob Walker dares to hope that our Lenten meditations can empower us to build Christian bridges over chasms that now threaten our civic and spiritual lives. If issuing this call were his only aim, it would be enough. But O Beautiful Dust is so much more. Walker's evocative poems invite us to see, really to see, the grit and glitter on Jesus' 40-day hike to Jerusalem. This slender volume will accompany me on my own Lenten journey this year, and what fine company it is.--Rev. Elizabeth M. Edman, author of Queer Virtue: What LGBTQ People Know About Life and Love and How It Can Revitalize Christianity

Walker's collection, O Beautiful Dust, is a heartfelt exploration of hard questions, deep hungers, and dark places--where a call to love and a prayer for hope become a voice of peace for a grieving, weighted generation.--Mariella Taylor, The Folded World
