In this final episode of the Candles, Cassocks and Conversions series I discuss three key questions that every follower of Jesus needs to be asking to increase their "Response Ability".
Who is Jesus? What is he doing? What does that mean for us today?
It is these questions that lead us to a kind of "second conversion" beyond the boundaries of our own personal belief system and into the world we are called to serve.
In this episode we explore "The First Conversion" in the journey of following Jesus.
When we consider the supernatural nature of Jesus our following of him inevitably leads us beyond the naturalistic worldview in which many of us live.
To truly follow Jesus we must "step off the cliff" of the known into the relationship of the unknown.
This is the first in a 3 part series where we explore the idea of religion. Good religion, bad religion, what it tells us about ourselves and how we use it to follow Jesus in the world today.
Welcome to episode 1 of the follower podcast.
Here I introduce the basic concept of the podcast and encourage us all to come on a journey in exploring the Jesus who calls us out of the boxes we have made to either accept or reject him and discover what it means to be truly human. Who is Jesus, what is he doing, and how do we follow him in the world today? That's what we will be speaking about in this podcast and everyone is invited to the conversation.
