Getting on God's Wavelength- the Lord's Prayer in Aramaic
Wednesday, June 24, 2020 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM
Did you know that there are various versions of the Lord’s Prayer in the Christian scriptures used by different branches of Christendom? During this Day Apart, we will take a look at these versions, then examine possible translations of the Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic, the language that Jesus spoke. What a difference a translation makes! Aramaic yields astonishingly fresh insights into the nature of God, creation and human’s role in it, and prayer. Hints: Father does not specify a gender, and Heaven is not a place.
Aramaic is a vibrational language so it’s important to intone it aloud. Using a recording of the Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic, the singing bowls played by Doug Koch, and a book, Prayers from the Cosmos, by Neil Douglas-Klotz, a Sufi mystic who is a native speaker of Aramaic, we will engage in some “body prayers,” which encourage us to participate in the sound and feeling of the words as well as their intellectual or metaphorical meaning.
If you want to learn about this fundamental prayer of Christian worship around the world and practice attuning to the divine vibration, becoming one with the source of all creation, come to Rolling Ridge.
This Day Apart Retreat is being offered at NO CHARGE. However, REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. We will, however, graciously accept your generous donation to assist us during the COVID19 shutdown, as we offer ministry gifts to our community, we also accept your financial gifts of support, as well as your gifts of love and prayer.
