Another thought-provoking post Jim. Thanks. Oh how much richer Heschel and Forsyth's insights might have been had they made more of the role of the Great High Priest who gathers up our own groans and sighs and awkward fumblings - and indeed the whole creation's - and places them onto his own tongue that he might carry us before the face of the Father. Indeed, 'Prayer begins where expression ends', but only because of him.

'... near the end of the course when choices have to be made about what there is still time to explore and discuss - my suggested omission of Heschel was thankfully over-ruled'.

I'd expect nothing less in a Baptist College!


'In no other act does the human being experience so often the disparity between the desire for expression and the means of expression as in prayer.' I am so often aware of this.
