Prayer on Purpose
Jen Pollock Michel | Prayer on Purpose
Season 10, Episode 20 • 20-Apr-2021
"I’m Jen, and I’m practicing a habit called faith. I’ve loved stories since childhood: the intrigue of my dad’s boyhood adventures with his dog, Chief; the friendship of books when I was—yet again—the new kid in town. I followed stories into university, then graduate school where I studied literature. After I became a mom (and then a mom four times again), I passed years with my children, crowded around picture books and reading good stories.
As a Christian, it’s always been the stories of Scripture that have interested me most: of Abraham and his doubt; of Hannah and her grief; of David and his failure. To think of Jesus, the still point of God’s turning story, is to recall the parables he told and the Passion he lived. Though many turn to the Bible for what to believe and how to behave, I’ve come to think that it offers us something even more expansive and beautiful and imaginative."
