This week at 10:20 in the Barn, Catherine Kerrison at last begins her five-week series:
Listening for the Heartbeat of God: A Celtic Spirituality by J. Philip Newell. (available in print on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and as an ebook on Google Books)
We will begin our book study on Sunday, January 24, with the introduction and chapter 1, pp. 1-22. Let’s consider the following questions as food for thought for our discussion:
What are Pelagius’s views about human nature, good, and evil? How do they differ from those of Augustine of Hippo?
Why were Pelagian views so threatening to Rome?
What has shaped your views of these subjects in your Christian development?
How might they have been different if Pelagius had been venerated as a doctor of the Church (as is Augustine of Hippo), rather than excommunicated?
