Who Says You Haven’t Got a Prayer? The Lord’s Prayer

View outline (PDF)   Instructor(s): Rev. Dr. Richard Topping

Course Dates: July 11-15

This course will introduce students to historic and contemporary interpretations of the Lord’s Prayer. The course is an exercise in the “communion of the saints” as students learn to pray with the church following the model of prayer taught to disciples of Jesus Christ. Particular attention will be paid to how the Lord’s Prayer is both interpreted in light of a context and is light by which a context is interpreted.

The Rev. Dr. Richard Topping is professor of studies in the Reformed Tradition and Principal of the Vancouver School of Theology
