In this reflection, Rev. Dr. John Dickson talk about total dependency on the bread of life, and being one of the first cultures in history that doesn't see the process of food being grown, harvested, and prepared.

"For most of us food is like magic, it just appears — but the Lord's prayer says, No, no, everything comes from the hand of God." 

Join Common Grace in rediscovering the power of how Jesus taught us to pray. As we open our hearts in approach to Easter, let's enter deeply into Jesus’ invitation into God’s heart for the world — the Lord's Prayer.
