The Lord’s Prayer is four sentences long, containing just 50 words, and yet entire books have been written about those precious words given to us by Jesus himself. For the past month our Sunday morning Adult Education group has been studying the Lord’s Prayer, looking deeply into this simple and yet profound prayer. When we slow down and spend that much time on this study, it opens a window on our faith and common life as followers of Jesus.
We want to know God, grow spiritually, and enjoy the confidence that is a gift of faith. That is why we worship, sing, and pray together each week, but there is more we can do. Learning together is a faithful, thankful response to God’s love. This is the earliest tradition, as we see in Acts 2:42: “And they continued in the Apostle’s teaching and fellowship and the prayers.”
Each Sunday morning at 9:00AM in the couch area of our parish hall, a small group gathers with Deacon Richard Buhrer for seminar style conversation on Christian spiritual growth. The great thing about this style of learning is that we learn from each other and from the leader, and the conversation can follow our interests and curiosity, wherever they lead. Stop by next Sunday and see for yourself!
Yours in Christ,
