Heidelcast 213: Answering Brian’s Text Asking How Do We Know Whether To Stay In A Congregation And Continuing The Series Our Father (4)

What Does It Mean To Say: "Our Heavenly Father"?

This is part four in our series on prayer, Our Father but before we get there we answer Brian’s Heidelext message asking about whether to stay in his congregation. They are in the process of joining the Communion of Reformed Evangelical Churches. Brian’s question is pointed and important and so we spent some time on it. The section on prayer begins at about 36 minutes in. Because of some of the scandalous things that have occurred in one or two of the congregations in the CREC, this is a complex answer that required some time. There are some sensitive topics discussed briefly. There is an audio warning in the episode. If the topics discussed are new to you, please see the extensive documentation in the show notes for this episode. On prayer we turn to the question of what it means to say “our heavenly Father.” Why did our Lord instruct us to speak to our Father this way? What does this way of addressing God tell us and how does knowing that help us to pray?
