A Call to A New Way of Life
We live in a time of great change. And yet the Gospel of the Kingdom that Jesus preached, lived, and invites us into today, is eternal and unchanging. Sustainable Traditions is an exploration of the eternal lifeways and wisdom that is found in a whole-life devotion to the resurrected Jesus and His here-now/coming-soon Kingdom. This is a broad conversation – because our faith touches on every aspect of our human life. This conversation includes both heaven and earth – the theological and the practical – because belief and action cannot be separated. We are journeying towards holy community and the outworking of God’s love that calls us all out of pride and self-absorbed living. Jesus calls us to a new life. What does the outworking of this new life look like – within the crumbling walls of modern faith – and in the streets and fields of the world?
