Creation is declared “good” even “very good” and then God is incarnated in Jesus. This tells us clearly that the material world is of utmost importance to God. The “Good News” is that the “Gospel” values our physical world and our physical bodies. And as Dallas Willard says, “The “Good News” is that we can join God in what he is doing right here and right now.” (in both us and the world around us)
Walter Brueggeman (a modern day C.S. Lewis) addresses what he calls Materiality (the partner of Spirituality). Using short videos to prompt discussion, Bureggeman will address topics like materialism, money, food, body, time and place. In other words the very things that are part of our everyday life. Each moment, issues that makes up our life can be influenced by the teachings of Jesus, leading to a life that flourishes.
This time together is about who we are to be in this world.
At Nexus we don’t use over-structured curriculum which can so often douse the spark of creative exchange and intuitive responses. We try to leave room for the stirring of the divine. This is worked out by asking each of the participants to fully engage the material with questions, doubts, insights and openness that reflect their own journey. Therefore, the direction of each evening is determined by the video and the interests of the group.
2. PODCAST THEOLOGY – Group Full
This group will be starting back up on January 12th! Every other Tuesday, the group comes together on Zoom, prepared to discuss a pre-arranged podcast. Podcasts reflect a wide range of topics from thoughtful people of diverse backgrounds, and each week’s topics are collaboratively chosen. Members discuss how the podcasts’ ideas challenge and complement their faith. The first meeting will be January 12th.
