In this course, we will read together prayers Christians and Christian communities have written along these 2000 years - from the Didache to the prayers done for Black Lives Matter, we will see how the relation between law of prayer, law of belief and law of life (the lex orandi, lex credendi and lex vivendi) have been shaped by Christians all along, and how social location has been reflected and contested in prayer. We will learn patterns of prayers and how prayer continues to be a spiritual, bodily, affective, and social "event." If prayer is the grammar of our faith, in this course we will seek to expand our vocabulary and our language. We plan to visit Christian communities in Chicago and participate in their prayer practices as well.
