Langston Hughes penned a story about a character named “Simple” being caught up in times beyond him. Overwhelmed and distraught, Simple offers a simple prayer. In these chats, we’ll follow his lead. Eyeing the times, we’ll share a story and say a prayer. Faith is included, but so are cookies and office chairs and getting stranded on roofs—a wide array of relatable misadventures. Come to think, to slow down, to laugh, and, if you want, to pray. Simple thoughts. Simple Prayers.
