"Perhaps no other words flow so freely from the lips of well-intentioned people as the phrase 'the will of God.' God is blamed for so much! – Bishop John Shelby Spong.  

Last week we explored Jesus’ vision of the kingdom of God and how it begins with ourselves. Can we also apply that same vision here when it comes to ‘the will of God’? Afterall, ‘the will of God’ is quite ambiguous. Can we recognize ‘the will of God’? Can we separate it from our own desires, or should we? Today we invite you to listen as Pastor Tony Minear, Ph.D. explores the third line of The Lord’s Prayer: ‘Your Will be Done on Earth’. Most Christians long for the GPS coordinates to ‘God’s will’ as guide for our life’s journey; life would be easier to navigate for sure. But what if we began to see that the power may reside within us? And, perhaps, within that self-reliance, we discover that we merely need a compass to direct our course in the general direction and flow of the divine instead of blaming God? Would your view of God shift? Would you trust yourself more?
