The February 23 issue of The Living Church is available online for registered subscribers. In this edition Leigh Edwards writes of her life within the Community of the Franciscan Way in Durham, North Carolina:

As we prayed the Offices and Compline at the Maurin House, often around meal times, we found ourselves eating with the other folks who prayed. And the more committed we became to these prayer times, the more we said no to other demands on our time. The prayer began transforming our lives, not least as we spent more time with people we may not otherwise have chosen as friends. This time, our bond was not an abstract commitment to Christians spending time together, but a common sharing, to different degrees, a defining rhythm of life: daily prayer and Eucharist.
