St. Paul's, Woodville, Holds Annual Community of Hope Retreat

Members of the Community of Hope at St. Paul’s, Woodville, recently spent a retreat day pondering the question: “How do you make the Lord’s Prayer your prayer?” This quiet day retreat offered a time for COH members and community friends to discuss and meditate on issues of great importance.


Dedicated COH members developed exercises and activities based on N.T. Wright's “The Lord and His Prayer,” including a stunning Power Point history of the Lord’s Prayer. The presentation described the historical significance of this prayer and the "you are here" approach to Jerusalem at the time of Jesus. Attendees discovered a new significance of the prayer and left the conference committed to no longer saying the words in repetition without thought. They left with a new vision of The Lord's Prayer that is personal and has meaning for their daily lives.
