Manna: Spring 2017 Issue

I have recently completed work on the Spring '17 issue of Manna magazine for the Diocese of Bath and Wells. Manna is an A4 quarterly, 24 page publication designed by myself.

Here are Editor Louise Willmot's thoughts on the latest issue; “‘Let us pray’. Such a simple phrase and one that is so familiar to us, but how many of us stop to consider why we pray or why it’s important. How many of us think about how we pray?

“The question of why we pray is addressed in this issue by Emma Buchan, Project Leader for Thy Kingdom Come and explored further in our feature article, ‘The Importance of Prayer’. If you are still praying the way you were taught at school or Sunday school, do take a look at our article ‘Getting the Prayer Habit,’ which looks at fun ways children are being encouraged to pray. It just may inspire you. In this issue we also hear from individuals who have already been inspired. Daniel Berry and Sister Alison Fry give us a glimpse into their lives of prayer and Pete Greig, who discusses his new book Dirty Glory and the ‘accidental’ spread of 24-7 prayer, the global movement he started.

“Prayer has been a wonderful subject to explore for my first edition of Manna, and I hope we have answered some of the questions you may have about prayer.

“There were many other aspects of prayer we would have loved to have covered if we could, such as Christian meditation and also the effect of prayer on the brain. Perhaps another time...?”
