Always being made new: Our Changing Faith Journey

Sunday, July 23, 2017 | 11:30am

In July, we welcome the Rev. John Lillie, pastor of Lutheran Church of the Foothills, Tucson, Arizona, who will be spending part of his sabbatical with us at the Cathedral. In addition to participating in our daily worship life, he invites us to take a two-part journey, Always being made new, exploring how our walk of faith is in a constant state of reformation. Using visuals to highlight steps on the way, Part I will take us from our earliest Biblical narratives through various milestone changes, landing in the early 16th century. Part II will explore Martin Luther—Man, Monk, and Reformer at 500. Who was this man? What is his legacy for us today?

In this first of two sessions, visiting pastor John Lillie takes us on a journey from our earliest Biblical narratives through various milestone changes--including a look at some pre-Luther reformers-- landing in the early 16th century.

"Let’s explore how our faith history has been one of constant change, from our earliest Biblical narratives— Creation history; Moses and the Exodus; our wandering experience; Judges and Kings; David’s ‘Big idea’; exile and back home again; the inter-Testamental time; the Jesus movement; Paul and the early community; Arianism; Benedict and monasticism; Islam; the Great Schism; Francis in Assisi; John Wycliffe; Jan Hus; and others." Open to all!
