Spotlighting Christ

Intriguing question, Charles. Perhaps it has to do with Scripture passages like John 14:9 where Jesus states "Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father" & John 14:13 where he states "And whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son."

Philippians 4:6 directs us to pray to God (Greek word Theos which means the Trinity).

It seems there is nothing wrong with asking the Holy Spirit to help us pray.

The main focus should be on Jesus because that is where Scripture places it. But I think you have a point in that we should remember we serve a Triune God.

"Congrats, seniors, this will be a heck of a graduation." That's how a New York University press release breathlessly announced the commencement snaring of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. Other schools swoon over presidents: Barack Obama will speak at Barnard College (Columbia University) and Bill Clinton at little Columbia College in South Carolina.

Many universities think that TV names make a heck of a graduation, so Tom Brokaw, Katie Couric, and Brian Williams are orating at prestigious schools, and CNN host/Time editor-at-large Fareed Zakaria is playing a Harvard and Duke doubleheader. Happily, some Christian colleges are counter-cultural: Biola students will...
