Spirituality and Ethics
The Our Father - Overview

We live in challenging times as far as our faith values are concerned. There is the constant threat of terrorism, ethical scandals in many of the major institutions of society, concerted efforts from many secularists to water down our basic beliefs in the name of “political correctness,” and a tendency towards exclusiveness in who benefits from material success and the use of natural resources.

In Jesus’ time his disciples asked him to teach them how to pray. He responded with what we call, “The Lord’s Prayer.”

In this and the next couple of issues we will consider this prayer, phrase by phrase, in terms of the ethical and spiritual challenges we face today.
