A More Christlike Word  Fr. David Houk – Via Zoom at 9:15am

Readers of the Bible struggle at times with questions about the character of God. Particularly, how should one understand the violent passages of the Old Testament and how do they relate to God’s revelation in the person of Jesus Christ? Theologian Brad Jersak has just published A More Christlike God: reading Scripture the Emmaus way. It’s a new book commending an ancient way of reading an understanding the Scriptures: as Jesus says on the road to Emmaus, the Law and the Prophets are pointing to him, and only he fully reveals the Father. Join Fr. Houk in a read-through, exploration, and discussion of this book. Order the book here.

Archived: An Outline of the Faith  Fr. David Houk
Perhaps the most underutilized section of the Prayer Book is the Catechism, alternatively titled “An Outline of the Faith.” Here, we get the big picture of essential Christian faith and practice. Fr. Houk offered this guided tour of the Catechism in the fall of 2020, with theological commentary, Biblical insight, and practical application. It’s all there: from sin and redemption to the creeds and Sacraments, from the Church’s ministry to the Christian hope of life eternal. View the class on our YouTube page.
