Prayer to Go: College Edition

If you’re in the business of (or generally interested in) church leadership, you might’ve seen floating around the interwebs the idea of take out boxes for faith. Sometimes they’re designed for liturgical seasons like Lent or Advent; other times they’re distributed for seasons like summer, when mayyyybe folks don’t get to church as often.
