CHR is proud to present poet, essayist, and translator J. Chester Johnson in an evening celebrating the release of his newest book, “Auden, the Psalms, and Me”, the personal, untold story of the retranslation of the psalms contained in the current Book of Common Prayer, and his role on the drafting committee replacing the legendary poet W. H. Auden.

Join us on October 19 for a 6:30 reception followed by author reading at 7:00pm at Church of the Heavenly Rest. Copies of the book will be available for sale, courtesy of Corner Bookstore.

Need a Prayer

Open my lips, O Lord,
and my mouth shall proclaim your praise.

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me.

Cast me not away from your presence
and take not your holy Spirit from me.

Give me the joy of your saving help again
and sustain me with your bountiful Spirit.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
