How do we imagine time and how does our imagination shape our perception of prayer? This lecture explores what it means to cultivate an historical imagination and to develop an awareness of our location in time – past, present and future. It considers how such an awareness can sensitize us to our contemporary missional context, challenge prevailing post-modern perceptions of the self, and foster hope, identity and confidence.
