Evan Kreider led a beautiful meditation on prayers written by others that, to him, speak more deeply on his behalf to God than any words he could ever bring up. His personal view of God as remote is not remitted by bible reading or booklets or prayer journals, but instead in the words of prayer of ancient and modern theologians and writers. In a dozen prayers, the church was led in a exploration of the value of friends, the contrasts, successes and failures of relationship, and the hope of closer ties with God. Most poignant was Evan’s own untitled prayer – his own words open a window to the soul of an immensely talented man who still lives with questions about the difference he truly makes in the world.
