When asked by his disciples how to pray, Jesus gave them these words:
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed by thy name.
They kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
The Lord’s Prayer is a beloved prayer that is prayed daily by Christians across the world. The sermons of Lent will explore each line of the prayer and encourage you to pray as Jesus and his disciples did.
Prayer was the foundation of Jesus’ life and ministry and he called his disciples to pray with him.
If you don’t believe that evil exists, this adult Lenten class might change your mind. This six-week study will be based on Father Richard Rohr’s book What Do We Do with Evil?: The World, the Flesh, and the Devil. Father Rohr is a Franciscan priest and the founding director of the Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This small volume addresses three traditional sources of evil. Rohr describes how Christianity has focused almost exclusively on the individual, flesh level, while the world and the devil got off scot-free for most of Christian history. Evil is subtle and usually well-disguised.
