Interfaith Friendship

Trinity: Week 3 Interfaith Friendship Monday, September 26, 2016 Trinitarian theology offers us perhaps the best foundation for true interfaith dialogue and friendship we’ve ever had, because now Christians don’t have Jesus as our primary or only trump card. This makes mutual respect and intelligent dialogue with other religions easier and much more natural. Up… Continue Reading Interfaith Friendship

The Power of Love

Trinity: Week 3 The Power of Love Sunday, September 25, 2016 I think it’s foolish to presume we can understand Jesus if we don’t first of all understand Trinity. We will continually misinterpret and misuse Jesus if we don’t first participate in the circle dance of mutuality and communion within which he participated. We instead… Continue Reading The Power of Love

The Fourth Person of the Trinity

Trinity: Week 2 The Fourth Person of the Trinity Wednesday, September 21, 2016 Many of us started with some notion of God as an abstract Being and then, because of Jesus, we decided that this Being is also loving. Instead, the Trinitarian revelation begins with the loving–and this is the true definition of being! Most… Continue Reading The Fourth Person of the Trinity

Participatory Knowing

Trinity: Week 2 Participatory Knowing Sunday, September 18, 2016 All authentic knowledge of God is participatory. I must say this directly and clearly because it is a very different way of knowing reality—and it should be the unique, open-horizoned gift of people of faith. But Christians have almost entirely lost this way of knowing, ever… Continue Reading Participatory Knowing

The Loss of Community

Community The Loss of Community Wednesday, April 20, 2016 Unfortunately, for centuries the Christian vision of church was narrowed to what we have today—a preoccupation with very private salvation. Our “personal relationship with Christ” seems to be with a very small notion of Christ. We’ve modeled church after a service station where members attend weekly… Continue Reading The Loss of Community

Life as Participation

Paul: Week 1 Life as Participation Sunday, March 6, 2016 Saint Paul has always been a hero of mine. Unfortunately, Christians have often misunderstood Paul, seeing him as a moralist rather than a mystic. Yet Paul has so much to teach us. He never knew Jesus in the flesh, so Paul’s experience of the Risen… Continue Reading Life as Participation

God’s Solidarity with Suffering

Incarnation: Week 2 God’s Solidarity with Suffering Friday, January 22, 2016 While resurrection is where incarnation leads, there is one caveat, and it’s a big one: transformation and “crucifixion” must intervene between life and Life. Some form of loss, metamorphosis, or transformation always precedes any rejuvenation. We see this throughout the entire physical and biological universe.… Continue Reading God’s Solidarity with Suffering

Jesus: The Christ: Weekly Summary

Jesus: The Christ Summary: Sunday, March 22-Friday, March 27, 2015 Christ is a word for the macrocosm, Jesus is the microcosmic moment in time, and all else is the whole cosmos—including you and me. (Sunday) Whenever the material and the spiritual coincide, there is the Christ. (Monday) What was personified in the body of Jesus… Continue Reading Jesus: The Christ: Weekly Summary
