Description

WHEN WE PRAY, WHAT IS GOD DOING?

Prayer is a fundamental activity in most religions, yet its purpose and effect are hard to pin down. On top of that, we can't seem to agree on what kind of God it is we're praying to.


Is God a cosmic call centre manager, determining the worth of each of our prayers before deciding to answer? A distant, disinterested deity who never intervenes? Or an omnipotent overlord who has already decided everything in advance?

Renowned philosopher and theologian Thomas Jay Oord is offering a different perspective, one that is both challenging and encouraging, but which changes our understanding of prayer significantly.

As part of an international tour to launch his latest book 'Uncontrolling Love', Tom will be in conversation with Simon Hall, our regular chair and one of the book's contributors. They will be discussing Tom's ideas in general, as well as Simon's essay on healing prayer.
