Becoming the Answer to Our Prayers; Shane Claiborne & Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrave

the answer to our prayersQuotes:

  • The first word of the Lord’s Prayer is Our.  That’s important.  The prayer Jesus taught us is a prayer of community and reconciliation, belonging to a new kind of people who have left the land of “me.”
  • Christian community is the gift of a life that is worthy of God’s name.  Forgetting ourselves, we become the sort of joyful people who hallow God’s name by how we live with one another.
  • The kingdom that we beg God to send “on earth as it is in heaven” is a kingdom of generosity.  And it is contagious.
  • Temptation is part of the exodus adventure.  Temptation is a sign that we are still on our way to the Promised Land.  It reminds us that we have left something good for something better.
