Lord Teach Us How To Pray: The Politics of Prayer and Justice!
The convening of the 60th Garnett-Nabrit Lecture Series seeks to engage attendees around the theological and social implications of this most basic act of religious expression, prayer. Jesus, when asked by his disciples to “teach us how to pray”, responds not with instructions on the machinations of the act of praying, but rather instructions (on the content and meaning) of what to say when they pray. This year's theme; Lord Teach Us How To Pray: The Politics of Prayer and Justice is a powerful resource for the time in which we live in the United States. As we revisit the oft-quoted Lukan text referred to as “Lord's Prayer”, to re-imagine the implications of these words for the Church, the Community, and the World, we seek to discover and engage alternatives to transformation and God's Justice for the nation.
This year, we are excited to announce that, Rev. Michael Eric Dyson, Rev. Dr. Traci Blackmon, Rev. Dr. Phillip Pointer, Father Michael Pfleger, Dr. Riggins Earl, Rev. Tamika Robinson, and Rev. Timothy Careathers, all scholars, preachers, and practioners of the first order, that have agreed to share with us around our theme: Lord Teach Us How To Pray: The Politics of Prayer and Justice.
The Garnett-Nabrit Lecture Series is the College’s great event once a year where alumni, students and religious leaders come together for educational enrichment, theological and spiritual empowerment, to hear prophetic gospel preaching and lectures, and experience great fellowship.
