Welcome to St. Paul’s 2019 Lenten podcast, an audio companion for the Lenten season as together we explore the spiritual practices of prayer and pilgrimage. Each week, we’ll hear senior pastor Rev. Tommy Williams in conversation with special guests who share their own perspectives.

This episode is part one of a three-part conversation, in which Rev. Williams talks with Frederica Mathewes-Green. She is an author and speaker in the Eastern Orthodox tradition and has written 10 books, including The Jesus Prayer and The Illumined Heart: The Ancient Christian Path of Transformation. She concentrates on ancient Christian spirituality as an area both of study and of devotion. In today’s episode, she joins Rev. Williams on the phone for an enriching conversation about prayer.
