Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Submit an Event Listing Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Youth Minister Lorton, VA Submit a Press Release [Episcopal News Service] As Christians we practice prayer, we talk about prayer, and (if we’re ordained) we preach about prayer. But this past fall I got the chance to learn about prayer from a different perspective while writing a magazine article about the physical and psychological effects of this age-old spiritual practice.While doing research for the article, I interviewed several of the nation’s top researchers in the field of spirituality and health. They told me that more than 4000 studies have been done on the ways our religious beliefs and practices affect our physical and mental well-being. They talked about prayer as it relates to the mind-body connection, described what brain scans show when people are meditating, outlined the challenges of conducting double-blind studies of intercessory prayer, and speculated about the physical mechanisms that may be at work in prayer.I came away with considerable respect for the dedication of these researchers. But I was also struck by something one of these scientists said, a man who has spent his professional life researching the physical effects of prayer. “I study prayer, but I also practice prayer,” he added at the end of our interview, unprompted by any question from me. “I think the science is important, but I’m not going to base my religious practice on whether the latest double-blind trial finds something. The ability to connect with God, to connect with the eternal and holy, is a precious resource that we all have. That’s why I pray, not because science proves that it’s good for me.”I found it reassuring that even a top-notch research scientist recognizes the limits of his work. But his comment got me thinking about other experts on prayer: those who have actually experienced its power.I think, for example, of my friend Teri, who recently spoke at our church as part of an adult forum series on prayer. She talked of how she had been somewhat of a skeptic about prayer, despite having grown up in a devout family and having been an on-and-off member of a church herself for years. But when she was diagnosed with cancer last year, her extended family organized a healing service for her in the Roman Catholic parish in which she’d grown up. In came her aunts, uncles, cousins, second cousins twice removed, old teachers, school buddies, old neighbors, friends of her brothers and sister and their in-laws, and a bunch of people she’d never met before who came because they were part of a faith community and knew that someone was suffering and needed their help.Young woman praying before the healing shrine in Lourdes, France. PHOTO/Lori EricksonIn the middle of the service, the members of the congregation came forward and placed their hands on Teri’s head, shoulders, arms and back as they prayed, and she said she felt a kind of vibration or current flowing through her.Teri used a metaphor to describe what that experience was like, one that I’ve never heard used in conjunction with prayer. She said that she felt like she was a kite being lifted up into the sky by a string of prayers and that their collective energy was guiding her in flight.“That feeling still resonates with me even now, eight months later,” she said. “I haven’t been the same since. It’s not that I don’t get scared or grumpy or weepy at times, but I have a feeling or a knowing that the Holy Spirit is present. Some kind of energetic shift has occurred that has knocked me out of my head and into my heart.”And then she quoted a line from Rumi, the fourteenth-century Sufi poet who knew better than almost anyone the power of the Spirit:All of my life I’ve been knocking at the door, and when it finally opened, I realized that I was knocking from the inside.When we look for experts on prayer, we shouldn’t discount the contributions of scientists. But truly, the great masters of prayer are those who have felt its power from the inside.— Lori Erickson writes about inner and outer journeys at www.spiritualtravels.info.

The building is located in Alajärvi, a small village in eastern Ostrobothnia in Finland, in a valley-like area next to a small island of forest on the side of a farm field.Save this picture!Floor PlanIt was commissioned by a family of an entrepreneur father, an artist mother and two sons, who needed a house with spaces to live in accompanied with spaces for their hobbies and a studio to serve as an atelier.Save this picture!© Jussi TiainenThe house blends in with the surrounding landscape through its shape and materials. The composition subtly recalls the feeling of a traditional Finnish farm, in which wooden cottages were arranged so as to form a protected inner courtyard with the buildings facing the courtyard. In this case, the three buildings, the house, the atelier and the garage, give shape to an intimate garden, creating an optimal microclimate around the house by minimizing the impact of the northerly winds blowing in the valley.Save this picture!© Jussi TiainenBeing a low energy building, the L-shaped house is made of wood in its exterior, interior and frame, with large pitched roofs clad in aluminum reflecting the landscape in an unexpected way. Compressed wood has been used for insulation and paper has been used for sealing. All metal parts in the building are made of untreated aluminum. Materials and technical solutions create a healthy and ecological building which can be recycled when it reaches the end of its life cycle. The entity can be heated with its four heat retaining fireplaces which also provide hot water for the house. The lighting system in the house is supplied with batteries charged with solar power. It is possible to live in the house without being dependent on the power grid and water and drainage grids.Save this picture!© Jussi TiainenThe interiors are arranged according to three different functions into areas with each their own atmosphere. The garage and hobby space is very simple and has a sense of anonymity to its interior surfaces. The atelier has very high ceilings and its wooden surfaces, even floors, are painted white in order to make the light as even as possible. The interiors in the house, furnished and cladded in radially sawn spruce, provide a warm and cozy atmosphere. Its dwellers can enjoy the spacious living room and its central fireplace, climb on the mezzanine to contemplate the view over the fields, and use the large and furnished corridors as a play area or reading room, overlooking the inner yard through their wide openings.Save this picture!© Jussi TiainenProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse by the Lake / Marte.Marte ArchitectsSelected ProjectsThe Big Data Institute / Make ArchitectsUnbuilt Project Share Year: 2014 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/536171/house-riihi-oopeaa Clipboard ArchDaily Save this picture!© Jussi Tiainen+ 34 Share Finland 2014 Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/536171/house-riihi-oopeaa Clipboard Architects: OOPEAA Area Area of this architecture project Projects Houses “COPY” House Riihi / OOPEAASave this projectSaveHouse Riihi / OOPEAA House Riihi / OOPEAA CopyAbout this officeOOPEAAOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAlajärviHousesFinlandPublished on August 12, 2014Cite: “House Riihi / OOPEAA” 12 Aug 2014.

The Government’s matched fund grant for Localgiving’s Grow Your Tenner campaign is an effective way to make donations go further and help small charities thrive. We want as many donors as possible to help increase this fund and see the difference it can make.”Marcelle Speller, chairman and founder of Localgiving, added:“Small, local charities make an incredible difference to the communities they work in but, sadly, many are struggling and in great need of our support. Grow Your Tenner is a fantastic opportunity for philanthropists to maximise the effect of their giving – a single and simple donation will have a widespread effect, making a huge difference to potentially thousands of small charities, which simply isn’t possible any other way”.

The Office for Civil Society, part of the Cabinet Office, has contributed £250,000 to the matched giving fund for this year’s Grow Your Tenner campaign from Localgiving. Launching next month, the campaign aims to double all donations through Localgiving.com up to £10, with the aim of raising £4 million for small local charities.Small and local charities make up 50% of the UK’s voluntary sector by number of organisations, yet they receive only 0.6% of the funding. Localgiving is working to turn this around, throughout the year, and with this annual campaign.According to Localgiving.com, “through a combination of Gift Aid, tax relief, smaller local match funds and online donations, a single donation of £100,000 from a generous individual could facilitate up to £650,000 worth of donations to thousands of local charities across the country, at a cost of just £68,750 to that person”.£3m raised since 2012Grow Your Tenner was first run in 2012. In its first two years it has raised £3 million for small local charities.More matched funding soughtThe not-for-profit social enterprise is inviting other philanthropists to add to the matched giving fund, to boost the impact of donations to small charities. One philanthropist has already donated £250,000.It argues that it “would be near impossible for a philanthropist to personally identify thousands of local charities to donate to, but through match funding, a large donation is easily and democratically spread across multiple groups”.Brooks Newmark, Minister for Civil Society, said: Advertisement Tagged with: Digital Localgiving matched giving small charities 85 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2
