Description

This series focuses upon the unquiet soul of contemporary society. Sin as compulsion to idolatry will be interpreted broadly as expressive of our emotional addictions, sexuality and personalities. Understanding addiction and its widespread controls of our compulsive behavior leads us to enter more deeply and realistically into the importance that the desires of the heart have in our lives. How we become desirous of God through grace, in the exercise of prayer, meditation and thanksgiving, has been symbolized richly in the traditions of the church. These are described in the context of personal wholeness and health, since the aim of this course is not just informative, but inspirational and transforming. Lectures include:

  • Chasing the Wind
  • Fallen Idols
  • Eternal Return
  • Modern Disillusionment
  • The Desert Heart
  • The Garden of the Soul
  • The Mystic Pilgrim
  • The Child of God
  • The Soldier of Christ
  • Summary
