50 Ways to Talk To God

Meg Hunter-Kilmer writes a great piece:

I know there are people out there–lots of them–who show up Sunday morning and call it good for the week. I know there are people who check Catholic on forms but don’t have any kind of a relationship with Christ.

This is a great piece indeed. But notice the title as you have listed it here is not the same as Meg's, and it makes a big difference. Talking "about" God is far too easy, and we do it all the time. Talking "to" God is an integral part of prayer (the other part is listening to God), and Meg's whole point is to lead us to this wellspring of prayer. So, bravo for the post, and let us all learn not only to talk about God, but to talk to God and discern His voice in our lives. Thanks!
