S3 Episode 16: Our Father in Heaven

Welcome to Season 3 of Down Under Theology, a podcast equipping and encouraging Australian Christians to get down and under the theology impacting the life and mission of the church.

In Episode 16, we discuss a bit of the context for the Lord's Prayer before getting stuck straight into the opening address – Our Father in Heaven. We talk about what it means for God to be a Father (and take a short detour into ideas of God and gendered illustrations), and also what it means for him to be “in Heaven”. We see how this opening line of Jesus' prayer teaches us how we should approach our Father, and how it shapes how we pray.
