Talk About Sin, Part V: Our Journey Home

Talk About Sin, Part V: Our Journey Home

Even after we face up to our sin and hurtful behavior, change is elusive. Fervent and well-meaning resolutions to be better rarely produce lasting change and often backfire, causing despair and deeper backsliding. Real repentance occurs in the context of a love that is unconditional, that does not demand that we change in order to go on loving us. 

This is deeply paradoxical and unnerving, but it’s only in the context of unconditional love that real change, real personal development, can occur. And it’s this kind of love that Jesus extends to us.

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.

God’s Giving and the Great Thanksgiving

Eucharist means “thanksgiving” in Greek. Just as Eucharist is the central act of Christian worship, a life of thanksgiving is what Christians are supposed to be about. In this class, Greg and Robert will explore a theology of thanksgiving from Scripture and Christian practice.
