The Problem With Prayer

ORDINARY LIFE - Thoughts and Ideas to Help You Live a Happier Life

Summary for March 4, 2018

Dear Folks -

I began this week’s talk with a restatement of what Ordinary Life times are all about. Hopefully you might be able to use this in talking with others about the psycho/spiritual journey you are on.

Then, because one of the first questions that comes up when the traditional notion of a theistic interventionist God is challenged is, “What about prayer?,” I begin in this talk a mini-series on “Praying in the Gap.” This week’s talk is an attempt to address the matter I call “the problem with prayer.” What good is prayer and why pray? I hope this talk, and the two that follow, will help answer these questions. My belief is that if we can undertake our own work, it will affect the entire world.

That’s a brief summary of the talk I offered in Ordinary Life this week.

You can read or download the text from which I spoke, view the presentation slides and listen to the audio of the talk using the links below.

If you are reading this, I want you to know how grateful I am for and to you.

Be well and much love,

Bill Kerley
