Columbus: Rick Hamlin on Pray for Me
Join us on Wednesday, September 20th at 7pm as Rick Hamlin discusses his new book Pray for Me: Finding Faith in a Crisis.
When Rick Hamlin was rushed to the ER, he was immediately admitted to the ICU. No quick diagnosis was made, and for two weeks the doctors struggled to keep his body alive as Rick struggled to keep his faith alive. Pray for Me is the story of one man's spiritual odyssey to learn how to pray in a new way as healing slowly came and a medical crisis became a spiritual opportunity--a chance for him to learn he was being called to something new, to be born anew. In the end the doctors were never able to diagnose the cause of his illness, but Rick is convinced that the healing came through prayer.
Rick Hamlin is the executive editor of Guideposts magazine, where he has worked for twenty-five years. He is the author of three novels and a spiritual memoir, Finding God on the A Train. Rick and his wife, writer Carol Wallace, live in New York city, where they've raised their two boys. He's been a long time contributor to the best-selling devotional Daily Guideposts and regularly blogs on prayer at Guideposts.org.
