Pilgrim Uniting Church, Adelaide SA
SUN 28-JUL-2019 - 11.00 AM Sermon
Rev Sandy Boyce
Pentecost 7 – Luke's version of the Lord's Prayer addresses God as an intimate and tender "Daddy" type of father, and the prayer has just three requests: (1) give us our bread for the day – which today can be expanded to include the simple necessities to sustain life for all people and all living things; (2) forgive us our debts as we forgive the debts of others – unjust debt burdens often resulted in destitution; and (3) save us from the time of trial – that is, from situations such as violence and murder. In this sermon, the Lord's Prayer is discussed in its historical context, and also in a modern context with reference to the global consequences of human damage to the environment. There is an emphasis on social justice and environmental issues.
Luke 11: 1-13
