In each issue of The Upper Room, we publish a “Prayer Workshop” article written by one of our authors or staff. The prayer workshop invites us to try new ways to pray based on scripture or a biblical theme. The May/June 2015 includes a workshop by Dr. Dwight Judy, professor emeritus of spiritual formation at Garrett-Evangelical Seminary in Evanston, Illinois, and author of A Quiet Pentecost: Inviting the Spirit into Congregational Life. In this prayer workshop, Dr. Judy invites us to use our non-dominant hand in a contemplative art practice.
