From the series "Future Church." We live in a fascinating moment when culture is becoming both more moral (in particular around human rights) and less moral at the same time. The moral relativism of secularism cannot hold a soul (much less a society) together. In this moment, Jesus' call to holiness is more acute than ever before. While for many, the word "holiness" comes with the baggage of fear and shame, it's actually about joy. In this teaching we explore holiness, a theology of the body, and the practice of fasting as a path to joy in God.
From the series "Future Church." The zeitgeist of our generation is deconstruction. The ideologies of both the Right and the Left are operating as pseudo-religions, and drawing people away from orthodox faith. Each a political religion "with a twist of Christianity." How do we stay faithful to Jesus and not let our heart get swept away? Through the practice of reading Scripture we come to let Jesus' words abide deep in our being, and shape the trajectory of our soul.
