The Way, II — Christian Spirituality and Following Jesus

The Way, II — Christian Spirituality and Following Jesus

Why are we here? Why does God let history run on and on? What is the God-given purpose of all this time, and our purpose in the time we have left to live? The Rev. Robert Fruehwirth looks at St. Paul’s understanding of the purpose of the present time. Namely, this God’s call to us to grow into the likeness of Jesus so that we can share in his Kingdom, growing a community that reflects God’s Kingdom now, and growing in our witness to God in the world.

The Way, I— Theology

The Way, I— Theology

The Rev. Samuel Gregory Jones explores the essential Christian worldview. We live in an in-between time, a time between the Resurrection of Jesus and the Second Coming, when Jesus will be, as Paul says, all in all. We live, that is, between the inauguration of God’s Kingdom in Jesus and Spirit and its final realization. In this in-between time, the Christian community is an embassy of God’s Kingdom in the world, and Christians are ambassadors of Christ. As a famous theologian once said, the Church is a tree with its roots in the future and its leaves and fruits in the present. 

Practicing Epiphany

Practicing Epiphany

The Rev. Robert Fruehwirth explores the spirituality of Epiphany. We learn to see our lives as having provided the context for God's loving action. We learn to retell the story of our lives from God's point of view, with God as the main actor.
