Just plain good stuff...
Hopeful Notes


I have been going through N.T. Wright’s book, Simply Christian, with a group of guys in a morning study and this week we went through the chapter on “Prayer.” I really like Wright’s rendition of the Lord’s Prayer.

Dear Father,
"Jesus has caught me in the net of his good news.

I want to be part of his kingdom-movement.  3266479164_1b3ff05058_b

I find myself drawn into his heaven-on-earth way of living.

I want to be part of his bread-for-the-world agenda, for myself and for others.

I need forgiveness for myself—from sin, from debt, from every weight around my neck—and I intend to live with forgiveness in my heart and in my own dealings with others.

And because I live in the real world, where evil is still powerful, I need protecting and rescuing.

And, in and through it all, I acknowledge and celebrate the Father’s kingdom, power and glory."
