Our Men


Starting school from a non-religious background, I found prayers confusing - especially the Lord's Prayer which I learned by rote never having seen it written.

In particular I recall being age five - standing at assembly, puzzling over why the prayers always ended by us saying Our Men.

Questions such as: Who were these Men? Why were they ours? And what was the point of chanting about them?
