I began reading Anglican priest Tish Harrison Warren’s Prayer in the Night in early June 2021. The book was attracting much attention at the time, as it was being heralded as a wonderful book that deals well with grief and suffering. It was also the first book in a “Summer Book Club” at the new church in Indianapolis our family would be joining in just a few weeks. I figured the book club would be a great way for me to meet people quickly at our new church, so I decided to start reading it in my spare time between packing boxes and preparing for our move.
Little did I know how much this book would be ministering to me in just a few days.
