Wine, Women & War #3

Wine, Women & War #3

***IMPORTANT NERD CORRECTION: Kurt (for whatever reason) repeated the wrong number (over and over and over and over) in regards to the "angels of the nations" and the Septuagint. He knew, of course, that the correct number is 70 (some sources say 72), but admits his brain and mouth weren't communicating to each other in that moment of the talk ;-) Thanks for not mocking him for this grave nerd error!*** In this final installment of "Wine, Women & War" Kurt Willems looks at the reality of war from the angle of Ephesians 6. What sort of war are we to wage? What about actual wars? Is there a root cause and a deeper calling?

Wine, Women & War #2

Wine, Women & War #2

In this message, Kurt looks at the gender constructions on ancient Rome. After spending most of the time exploring the ancient world, he then looks at Ephesians 5 and the crucifixion of privilege. [sorry about poor recording quality!]

Wine, Women & War #1

Wine, Women & War #1

In this first installment of "Wine, Women and War: Dismantling Sacred Myths," Kurt takes up the issue of wine from a biblical perspective. Wine is good, except when it's not. We need to take both the goodness of wine and its abuse seriously. But the wine that we mostly need to ponder is that which comes to us in the Eucharist.
