The Lord's Prayer is said every Sunday and in the prayers of many even when it isn't Sunday. Sometimes what is so familiar benefits from experiencing it anew. Lizzy Trawick, an Episcopal Road Fellow, led the Common Ground Bible study through an interactive exploration of the Lord's Prayer on Wednesday. We honored God, each other, and our hopes for God's Kingdom here on Earth with battery candles, lessons in geography, the sharing of wonderful yeast rolls, and a sacred washing of each other's hands. We ended with laughter and everyone taking a silly picture.
Bible study normally meets at Woodruff Park. Because Atlanta was so rainy on Wednesday, we also enjoyed hot coffee and soup at the Landmark Diner instead of the park. Our friends at the diner are always so kind to us when the heavens bring forth rains and storms.
