Pastor Jake Hess wonders if prayer is like a lone baseball player throwing up the ball and hitting it into an empty outfield. Do we sometimes feel like God is not there to respond to us ... or is God the one "pounding balls into an empty outfield" wanting us to join in the game?

This issue features an update on the work of creating a new worship and song collection for Mennonite Church USA and Mennonite Church Canada. A few photos from our September retreat talent show are included, too.
