Is Lord's Prayer a Christian Prayer?
Ruth Moon, Christianity Today
In Mullin v. Sussex County, Delaware, a U.S. District Court must answer whether the Lord's Prayer is sectarian. Four residents sued the county council for opening meetings with the prayer. The county says it's not Christian "because no Christian tradition existed" when Jesus prayed it. The judge called the case difficult "because there is no reference to Jesus or Allah." Observers weigh in on whether the Lord's Prayer is a Christian prayer.
