For National Day of Prayer, Norris J. Chumley, Executive Producer and Series Host of the IRCPL’s radio series “New Directions in Prayer,” wrote about the series on HuffPo Religion.
New Directions in Prayer is unique for engaging both practitioners and scholars of religion to create a dialogue necessary for an informed public discussion on the role of prayer in people’s lives. Bringing interviews with scholars, professionals, and clergy members together with archival audio, the series is unique in its diverse approach to understanding what prayer is and the roles it plays.
