The Society of St. John the Evangelist is taking an innovative approach to prayer at General Convention, fusing prayers collected from on social media with the convention’s daily worship. We talk to Jamie Coats about how this all got started when SSJE’s brothers tried to figure out how they were going to offer spiritual formation during a temporary closure of their monastery.
