God Is for Us

Trinity: Week 3 God Is for Us Friday, September 30, 2016 Love is just like prayer; it is not so much an action that we do, but a dialogue that already flows through us.

The Delight of Diversity

Trinity: Week 2 The Delight of Diversity Tuesday, September 20, 2016 One of the most wonderful things I find in the classic naming of God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is its affirmation that there is an intrinsic plurality to goodness.

Participation: Week 2 Summary

Jesus spoke of true union… Continue Reading Participation: Week 2 Summary
