Building the Nest

Dr. G. Richard Smith

The Arkansas House of Prayer must generate its own budget each year in order to continue operations. Many of the last ten years have been touch and go financially for the AHOP. To remedy this situation, The Rev. Susan Sims Smith began an endowment campaign that is now 80% complete. We are grateful to these generous donors. This campaign, called “Building the Nest,” will result in an endowment to provide a “nest” for the AHOP while it continues to be a “nest” for those who seek quiet for prayer, meditation, and contemplation. A nest is a place of nurturance, growth, and protection; our prayers place us in the Divine’s symbolic nest where we grow. After the end of the year and our ten-year anniversary celebration, you will hear more about this important effort to ensure that the AHOP has an endowment to provide a place for sacred silence for generations to come. 

Please be prayerfully considering this important opportunity.
