Teach Us to Pray
Prayer is oft debated topic among Christians, and it has been for a few thousand years. It can begin to be a bit like musical genres Each denomination seems to have their own do's and don'ts, and woe to you should you make a mistake. However this is not how it should be. This morning Terry takes us through a look a prayer within Luke 11. Prayer is so much more than just saying the words on a page or the words we practice thousands of times. We must be intentional with what we say.
Terry proclaims the one Gospel through the history, research, rememberings and faith expressed in the text of the Gospel According to Luke. Jesus himself is the good news expressed by Luke. Beginning with the birth narratives unique to Luke's presentation, the good news of the Kingdom explodes into faithful view as each account, teaching, parable and event lived out and offered by Jesus, the Messiah-King, is examined the way Luke seemingly examined Jesus in his own work. Here we find a Jesus to love, a Jesus to follow, and ultimately a Jesus to worship.
