Approaching scripture, prayer, and our participation in the divine life, Father Kenneth Tanner explores a faith that is beautiful in its simplicity; God really loves humanity.

Kenneth talks about a wonderfully multifaceted church. He addresses how to approach scripture through community with both the contemporary and historic church. “It’s an experiential relationship with the church that reveals the whole picture of Jesus and how we should read scripture,” Kenneth speaks to prayer, once again approaching the subject through community, and finally, he speaks to our divinity in Christ.

Quotes:
“All the language that the New Testament uses is plural.”

“The core identity of every human is the image of God. Which cannot be taken from any human.”

Regarding Job, “…You can open that book and realize right away that it is not meant to be read literally. God does not play dice with human lives. Nor bargain or negotiate with Satan about human being’s lives…”

“The glory of God is a human being fully revealed.” Ananias

Fr. Kenneth Tanner is pastor of Church of the Holy Redeemer in Rochester Hills, Michigan. He writes for many magazines including, Sojourners, The Clarion Journal, and more.

ETERNAL LIFE WITH JASON CLARK

This podcast features Chapter Three of Jason Clark’s recent book, Leaving and Finding Jesus.

“We have been invited to trade a finite perspective with an infinite eternal life revelation—Christ in us, the hope of glory—and nothing separates us from His love! In John 17, Jesus prayed that we would know this union, this oneness, just as He and the Father were one. Further, He revealed there is no darkness light won’t penetrate, no brokenness that won’t be made whole, no road He won’t join us on, no soil the Seed won’t transform, no consequence of sin that His justice won’t restore—past, present, or future…”
