You are invited to join your instructor and fellow students in a two-week course that unpacks the existential power of the best-known prayer in the world. By reading, discussing, and engaging in practical exercises that guide you through re–reading and re–praying the Lord’s Prayer phrase-by-phrase, you will gain a better awareness and understanding of this insightful theological statement. Author Don Underwood advocates that reciting the prayer daily is a powerful tool for developing a rich devotional life.
As you look carefully together at the content of the prayer, you will discover that it provides rich spiritual guidance for nearly every personality: for contemplatives searching for deeper spiritual life; for persons passionate about social justice; for those seeking strength to simply make it through another day.
