Day 5: Rosary Recitation with Kimberly and Karen
November 5, 2012
I've read the Lord's Prayer many times. It often brings me comfort. But the last few years, each time I read it, something bothered me.
The line, "Lead us not into temptation..." was the culprit. I know from first hand personal experienced that God does not lead us into suffering.
Then as Karen Tax was preparing to be our guest for today, she sent me an interpretation of The Lord's Prayer by Eric Butterworth, a highly estemed Senior Unity Minster for the New York City center and author. It is a beautiful version.
When I got to that pesky line, it said, "Leave us not in temptation...". That clicked. I knew this was the original intent in this prayer. It brought peace to my heart.
I'm Rev. Dr. Kimberly Marooney, your host.
Our guest is Karen Tax, a dear friend. Karen starts off our rosary by reading this interpretaton of The Lords Prayer that is aligned with my heart and soul, and hers. Is it also aligned with yours?
The words that we use to describe our spiritual beliefs and experiences are very dear to us. We can feel agitated when people use other words that trigger us. Try an experiment. Just notice which words make you feel connected and comforted, and which words trigger you. Then just relax. See if something new can happen within you.
