We looked at Justin Martyr's Fragments on the Resurrection last night. We heard how he became a Christian after meeting an old man who challenged him; how (like Augustine, Wesley and ourselves) his heart was restless until he found his rest in Jesus, and how through Christ's resurrection he defended God's promise to gather up all things, even our flesh.
Find notes below!
We met last night to study Clement's First Epistle to the Corinthians - and discovered a passion for Christ as "the Sceptre of the Majesty of God", a conviction in justification by faith alone as well as for good works, and a reflection on how the holiness of God should change how we relate to one another.
Some great stuff in Clement's letter - find notes for last night's session below:
NOTE: this was our last session for the summer. I hope you all have a great July & August and come back rested in September. We'll hit the ground running!
We had our first Heritage session last night - looking at C.S. Lewis' On the Reading of Old Books.
We learned why it's important to let the "clean sea breeze of the centuries" expose our own blindspots. Not because of some misplaced nostalgia, but because death does not get to define the Church.
Given how much the Heritage sessions rely on discussion, the notes for these sessions will inevitably be a bit less detailed than for our other times together. Nevertheless, find two things attached below:
Hopefully they'll prove helpful :)
