ADVENT RECORDING 9: THE LORD’S PRAYER

Vallée des SaintsThe recording begins with the Lord’s Prayer in Welsh, but today’s contemplation comes from the early Syriac Aramaic version of the prayer. This helps us draw out some of the otherwise hidden nuances in Jesus’ teaching of the prayer. The contemporary Sufi, Neil Douglas-Klotz, has done much work in recent years to raise awareness of the benefits of considering the Aramaic setting for Jesus’ teachings, and I have drawn on his translations here as well as working with the Syriac Aramaic.

Below you can find a beautiful musical version of the prayer.
