Why SSJE: Kari Peterson

I often remember that the brothers are at prayer as my alarm goes off early in the morning, during my lunchtime, while I’m commuting home at the end of the day, and after supper in the evening. I suspect that there are many like me both in the vicinity of the monastery itself and strewn across all parts of the country and the globe. Whether we realize it or not, we count on the rhythmic “drum beat” of the brothers’ daily prayer in the background or foreground of our lives to keep us faithful in our own practice of prayer and in our commitment to life in the Spirit.
