A Denver Book of Prayer was the wildest project Urban Skye has ever initiated. In 2009, we decided that Denver should have its own common prayer book. So, we "united the tribes" and invited twelve faith communities (ten churches and two missions) to collaborate on an original book of prayer--Denver style. It is structured around the theme "Faith in Paradox."
Each month you will have a new Denver guide. They will introduce themselves by a word-pair that reflects their take on "Faith in Paradox" along with their chosen Saint. Then, settle in for a month of guidance in the form of The Daily Office, Daily Readings and Weekly Spiritual Practices.
Enjoy this one-of-a-kind celebration of unity and diversity. May it help form your spirit, delight your soul, and remind you that you are not alone on the journey of faith.

DCC is a beautiful story of redemption and faithfulness. You would hardly know that the thriving church of today was a dwindling congregation ready to close its doors a decade ago. Their growth has come honestly from doing deep work among themselves, being faithful to understand and practice the biblical message, and taking seriously Christ's heart for the city, Follow them for a month and you'll learn how to spiritually "inhale and exhale" every day.
