The deeper and deeper I get into this course, the more I am realizing just how much trauma I carried with me into this program. Having studied the teachings of John Piper and Mark Driscoll while sitting under the leadership of Greg Laurie and Chuck Smith made the reading from Calvin feel particularly hard to read – and it took a conscious effort for me to not toss it all aside, stating simply that “I know that – it’s the ACTS model, right? Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, and Supplication.”
That being said, there are some good things that I still hold to in the praying of the Lord’s Prayer and especially as I have been finding more comfort and solace in the older liturgy and practices. It is only in the legalism that declares “this is the right way to pray” that I take issue and tend to turn the other way.
