Bishop Carlo Rapanut on a prayer run

I just completed the third week of my prayer run (read about it here: #PrayerRun on Facebook), and with each step, my excitement is building as we get closer to the official start of our journey of life and ministry together. I share a special prayer today to all clergy and laity in the Desert Southwest Conference as you prepare to lead worship in celebration of the birth of Jesus! May the light of Christ’s hope, peace, joy, and love radiate in and through you!

I have so far ran and biked 102.34 miles in prayer. Here’s a recap of the third week:
