A new look at old words

After spending my entire lifetime in fundamental evangelical churches, I’ve developed a gut reaction of dread when I discover another sermon has been preached, based on certain biblical passages. That knot of anxiety is loosening with the mental rewriting being done through Rev. Katie Hays sermons and podcasts. Cultural context, language of origin, and acknowledgement that the writers of the Bible are, in fact, NOT infallible are all key components of the restructuring going on in my faith-life. Being able to listen, pause, and replay key passages in the podcasts gives me a welcome midweek reminder that the God of judgement I grew up with can be replaced with the God of Love.

Scripture Redeemed

The sermons at Galileo show me a perspective on scripture I've never seen before. Every time, there's a point at which I go "Ohhhhhhh!!!" and the way I think about the passage being preached on is forever changed. I grew up in a conservative fundamentalist church, and I knew my bible pretty well, so most every passage has some kind of baggage for me, something I used to believe because of the way I used to read it. Studying the bible at Galileo is like redeeming the sacred text, one passage at a time.

Looking for Something Good

A good work was begun in Rev. Katie Hays a while ago and now Katie Hays has begun a good work with the next generation of faithful. Don't miss what's being done here. Drink in the traditions new and old. Find Jesus here.
