Balanced Theology 08-24-2017

Today religious people are plagued by too narrow a pursuit of orthodoxy on the one hand or dispensing with orthodoxy altogether on the other.

If the theologian defines orthodoxy too narrowly she succumbs to exclusive trains of thought, which are subtle forms of violence. If, on the other hand, the theologian throws her hands up and claims ultimate unknowability, she betrays her faith tradition and leaves the gate open for any imposter.

If there’s no measuring rod of faith, no banks to the river—that faith, that river, will begin to become indistinguishable from the surrounding landscape. And eventually the river will be no more. This is the ultimate threat of new age phenomena—that culture will influence faith for the worse, rather than faith influencing culture for the better.

The Way of the Wisdom Jesus: Going Beyond the Mind to the Heart of His Teaching – If you put aside what you think you know about Jesus and approach the Gospels as though for the first time, something remarkable happens: Jesus emerges as a teacher of the transformation of consciousness. In this online course, Episcopal priest, teacher, and retreat and conference leader Cynthia Bourgeault serves as a masterful guide to Jesus’s vision and to the traditional contemplative practices you can use to experience the heart of his teaching for yourself.  Based upon her book the Wisdom Jesus.

Our friends at Contemplative Light are offering  Contemplative Practices. This  course examines in-depth traditional practices of the Christian mystics, including:  The Examen, Centering Prayer, Lectio Divina, The Jesus Prayer and Christian Meditation.

Prayer is a core Christian practice, but for many, this means “saying prayers” or asking God for various favors. In this course, we will review a variety of methods of prayer that have been used for centuries in Christianity. Whether you’re a beginner who is just learning how to pray, or a more mature Christian who has been at it awhile, this course will offer specific guidance, encouragement and support for practicing several time-tested methods of prayer.  Enjoy a review of this course by Rich.
