I hope and pray y'all's readings continue to go well. I've found all the comments so far helpful and encouraging, so thank you for those who have taken the time to post. I hope thinking through an entry and writing it out has been helpful in debriefing for you. In particular, the theme of humilty, as Brad pointed out last post, seems to have emerged over and over again which I think is a proper read of the cross and is extremely helpful in the way we approach Christ, each other, and the world. I look forward to seeing how this idea of humility continues to play itself out.
Part 1 is a nice introduction to the cross, but Parts 2 and 3 are where it really begins to get heavy, deep, and (for us reading dorks out there) fun. Much awaits us this week and next.
Week 2 (June 7-13): Part 2, pages 89-162.
Question: I simply want to repeat and rephrase Brad's question concerning humility from last post: In response to the cross, how do we cultivate humility in our lives? Furthermore, in response to the cross, how do we cultivate humility in Christian community, both in the community on campus at UNH but also within the global Christian communty? What does this humility look like? How do we work towards it?
