Dear Folks -
With this talk I begin going through the teachings in the Gospel of Thomas. Since this teaching is about seeking for the truth, I speak about two of the arenas in which we will be seeking.
The first is the movement that became Christianity prior to the fourth century when Constantine created “imperial Christianity.”
The second is the mind-boggling understanding of the cosmos in which we live. We are the first generation in the history of the world to have the knowledge and information about both how immense the cosmos is and how tiny.
While speaking about this second arena, I refer rather extensively to the conference we just attended in New Mexico with Richard Rohr, Rob Bell, and Ilia Delio. The information we received from Dr. Delio was mind boggling.
I speak a bit about how these new discoveries affect our understanding of both ourselves and our faith.
