Follow A Denver Book of Prayer month by month!

We decided that Denver should have its own common prayer book and invited twelve faith communities to collaborate on an original book of prayer structured around the theme "Faith in Paradox."

Each month a new Denver guide will introduce themselves with a word-pair reflecting their take on "Faith in Paradox" and 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.

MAY
Scum of the Earth

Faith in Paradox: Strength & Surrender 

Saint: Saint Francis of Assisi
Practices: Public Transportation, Burning Something, Surrendering Time, Surrendering Rights

There is no better church name than Scum of the Earth.  What many do not realize is that the name was taken right from the pages of the Bible (read May 1 entry to see where).   Theirs is a church for "the left-out and the right-brained", an apt self-description.  You will love reading their introduction in ADBP as you will their daily offerings.  You'll find a varied collection of Bible reflection with social commentary and poetry.  Lots of wonderful poetry. St. Francis is a good choice to represent them as he gave up a powerful name, family and position to become a social misfit (even among priests) who talked with animals, campaigned for peace and was intimate with God.  That intimacy is what SCUM is all about and joining them for May will help your own journey toward the intimate heart of God.
