Sermon

Minister of Community Life Rachel Bauman explores the ways we might see and understand God who or what do we presume is on the other end. of our prayer communications. She then reflects on the ways that prayer can restore us to relationship with God. In one of Jesus? parables (Luke 18:9-14), a Pharisee and a tax collector are both praying, and Jesus makes a point about the nature of prayer in that story. Rachel wonders aloud: which of those characters we are most like. Are we opening ourselves in humility or assuming that we are "sufficient unto ourselves".
