“Debts, Trespasses and Sins : A Homily on the Lord’s Prayer”
Depending on our tradition or denomination we use one of three words at the twelfth verse of The Lord's Prayer in Matthew's gospel. What do those words mean and why were they chosen as translations? This question captures our attention, so much so that we forgot that no matter which word we use, they all call upon us to seek forgiveness from God for our sins. In this homily, Rev. Ben walks through the history of these words on a pathway to revealing what it means to seek forgiveness from God for our debts, trespasses, or sins.
