The Spring 2016 issue, "Anglican Women at Prayer," was edited by Ruthanna B. Hooke and Cynthia Briggs Kittredge. The issue features essays developed from the "Anglican Women at Prayer: Weaving Our Bonds of Affection" conference in 2014 at Virginia Theological Seminary, co-sponsored by the Center for Anglican Communion Studies at VTS and the Society of the Companions of the Holy Cross. These articles and Practicing Theology essays explore the multifaceted varieties of expression and international dimensions of the prayer of Anglican women today: from weavers in Tanzania and Fiji, to African American "church mothers" in the United States, to an Oxford University canon professor of theology; from the intercessory prayer networks of the Companions to activist women protesting oppression and violence in South Africa; from youth prayer groups in China, to the prayer of transgender women in North America and the United Kingdom, to the spiritual formation in a life of prayer offered by a solitary Benedictine in New Zealand.
Margaret Adams Parker and K. Jeanne Person provide the review articles for this issue. Peggy Parker writes on "The Visual Image as a Means of Prayer," featuring artwork from the Episcopal Church and Visual Arts (www.ecva.org) online exhibition Anglican Women at Prayer. Jeanne Person surveys recent books by Anglican authors Lauren F. Winner, Cynthia Briggs Kittredge, Barbara Brown Taylor, and Diana Butler Bass. This special issue also features poetry by women poets.
