I gave a talk today online for the CMJ-UK 2022 Conference going on in Staffordshire, England. Here’s the description:
Hebraic Ways to Live a Blessed, Prayer-Filled Life
Understanding the Bible in context is critical. Hearing Jesus teach within his Jewish setting unlocks keys to his meaning. How can this knowledge actually change us from within? What can it do to deepen our walk with Christ and faith in God? We will look at an ancient, rich Jewish prayer tradition and consider a practice that will change the way you think, pray and live.

This is a favorite chapter of mine and a fun talk to give. I hope you find it useful and worthwhile.
This talk comes from my book Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus, out of a chapter called “For Everything a Blessing.” There is a list of blessings for various occasions that is included in the book’s appendices which you can download here:

During the Q & A, someone commented on the fact that there is actually a blessing that you pray after using the bathroom! Several years ago I wrote about this blessing and shared a piece written by a Jewish physician that was quite profound. Read it at this link.
