For Lent 2017 we're going to be walking through the six parts of the Lord's Prayer. We begin in the beginning: who is God, and how should we pray to Him?

Was the cross cosmic child abuse? Or appeasing the wrath and violence of a distant God? Could God not forgive sinners without someone dying? Why the need for so much blood?
I know from talking with people over the years that the crucifixion is a major stumbling block for some people when it comes to following Jesus.
If you are a person who's always found the death of Jesus confusing at best or troubling and disturbing at worst, this sermon is for you. Because it's actually really beautiful and good news that Jesus was murdered... and I am aware how weird and morbid that sounds.
