VIOLENCE DIVINE: OVERCOMING THE BIBLE’S BETRAYAL OF ITS NONVIOLENT GOD
A Video Series by John Dominic Crossan
Led by Russ Harper
Filmed before a live audience in a workshop setting, professor and author John Dominic Crossan summarizes the essence of his bestselling HOW TO READ THE BIBLE & STILL BE A CHRISTIAN: Struggling with Divine Violence from Genesis Through Revelation. Is the only path to shalom through a valley of capricious divine bloodshed? One of the world’s foremost historical Jesus scholars helps the church rise above the greatest of Christian treasons: that everlasting peace can only be achieved through the onslaught of divine violence.
Violence Divine is a DVD-based program. The format for each 1 ½ hour session includes chapter breaks and discussion questions related to each 40-minute video segment. No book required.
MEDITATING WITH THE CREATION MYSTICS
Led by Sid Hall & Mark Moore
This class will explore the poetry and theology of six creation mystics to help us root ourselves more deeply in the spiritual foundation of Trinity Church. Each week will focus on a different mystic, how those mystics relate to the four paths of Creation Spirituality (Via Positiva, Via Negativa, Via Creativa, and the Via Transformativa), and what their teachings mean to us for our spiritual journey today. No book required.
