    The Apostle Paul and the Silencing of Women - Joshua Chestnut

    The Apostle Paul and the Silencing of Women - Joshua Chestnut

    This lecture was given on Friday, June 18th, 2021 at Southborough L'Abri Fellowship by Joshua Chestnut.


     


    The Apostle Paul and the Silencing of Women - Joshua Chestnut


     


    This lecture, the third in a series on Paul and women, will take an extended look at Paul’s infamous instruction for women to be silent in 1 Cor. 14:33-36, as well as his words about women not having authority over a man or teaching in 1 Timothy 2:12.  We will consider them against the backdrop of Paul’s ministry patterns, consider why he might have written them as well as consider what they mean, both for Christians in the first century and for us today.

    “Jesus – The Stone that the Builders Rejected” By Dick Keyes

    “Jesus – The Stone that the Builders Rejected” By Dick Keyes

     


    Jesus revealed himself using a complex but important metaphor. We will look at his promise that he was the Chief Capstone and the Rock of Salvation, but also warned that he was the Stone of Stumbling which could destroy us. How can we resolve these two sides of the metaphor?

    Fitting a frame around our fears: what about when psychiatry and psychotherapy cannot help? by Dr. Brandon Unruh

    Fitting a frame around our fears: what about when psychiatry and psychotherapy cannot help? by Dr. Brandon Unruh

    Beginning with an overview of various forms of anxiety which are commonly amenable to professional help, this talk (by a practicing psychiatrist and psychotherapist) explores the limitations of psychiatry and psychotherapy as tools for managing our deeper, wider existential fears.  This inadequacy is proposed to stem from the inherently naturalistic worldview typically operationalized throughout these working models.  It is proposed that applying a wider frame of reference which includes God, and specifically the trinitarian Christian God, provides resources for transforming, though usually not removing, our lived experience of anxiety.

    The Doctrine of the Fall as Good News

    The Doctrine of the Fall as Good News

    The Doctrine of the Fall as Good News


    By Ben Keyes


    From a Christian worldview the doctrine of the fall provides an answer for the basic questions: “what is wrong with the world and why?” However, in eagerness to emphasize the good news and victory of the gospel, Christian people sometimes under-emphasize the fall and its many effects. Sadly, this can lead to confusion and disillusionment in our faith. This lecture will explore an idea that we have seen demonstrated in the life of L’Abri many times: that while the fall itself is the worst news, understanding the doctrine of the fall can bring clarity to much of our confusion and equip us to live in a world that is broken.

    Where Did Human Rights Come From?

    For our lives to go on we all assume a respect for human rights in ourselves and in our neighbors. What are human rights, how did we get them and why are they important?

Long live L’Abri!

I don’t know what I would do without L’Abri. I wish I could live in this community, but the next best thing is to be able to listen to this wealth of ideas on the podcast. They remind me of all that is good and beautiful and true, the old stories and fairy tales and poetry that our culture so desperately needs. The modern American church would benefit so much from emulating their model of Christian fellowship and discipleship and their care of the life of the mind.

Excellent.

These lectures are thought-provoking, informative, intelligent, and worth the time investment. Not the average evangelical flavor you'd get on Christian television or radio. Give L'Abri a try.
