Rediscovering the Anthropology of Hesychasm Today
Beyond a coherent Christian mysticism, the Hesychastic tradition also offers a general anthropology, a vision and hierarchy of the human person which can give us a way to live in the world today.
Image & Likeness: Developing a Biblical Worldview
Genesis 1:26-27 contains the phrase “image and likeness” in reference to God's creation of humanity. This talk will explore the biblical and contextual meaning of this phrase and its implications for an authentic Christian spiritual life.
We'll examine both the narrative and cultural context of Genesis and what these together actually communicate about our nature and potential as human persons in our relationship with God, humanity and creation.
Buffet Lunch & Social
Greek salad, rice pilaf with orzo, pork souvlaki with tzatziki, roast sirloin carved at the table with creamy horseradish, fresh fruit, hummus and pita. Drinks.
Sacred Art as the Only Hope for Reviving Culture
As we see the general degradation of cultural forms in Western culture, it is only a refocusing on the highest form of art which will bring us back from the Chasm.
The Modern Challenge
There are unique problems within modern culture for the Eastern Christian tradition. Thinking through those problems creates a deeper understanding of the task of our faith.
