Can you Drink the Cup? The Way of the Cross as the Foundation of Character Formation- Rich Villodas
One of the prevailing realities throughout the history of the church is the dissonance between power and character. We see it in the ongoing scandals in the life of the church. For centuries, the measure of power that is held by pastors and leaders has not been proportionate to the character needed to sustain it. But Jesus, from the very beginning of the church has sought to anchor us in a cruciform life, broken and vulnerable enough to lead in a way consistent with his kingdom. In this session, 5 cruciform questions will be explored for the sake of the future life of the church.
