I’ve posted on this book a few times:
We often imagine prayer as a practice that affects the content of what we think about — our moral aspirations, or our contrition. It’s probably more accurate to understand prayer as a skill that changes how we use our minds.
In other news, spent a great few days out in SF for AERA; great time connecting w/old friends and new. Special thanks to old college friend Albert for taking me to get In N’ Out and Taiwanese desserts before the airport. One of the conference highlights was Peter Kiang’s acceptance speech for an award from the REAPA (Research on the Education of Asian Pacific Americans) SIG. Great business meeting Sam Museus and crew, and who knew that Vichet Chhuon was such a comedian?
