    The Beatitudes are among the most influential teachings in human history. For two millennia, they have appeared in poetry and politics, and in the thought of mystics and activists, as Christians and others have reflected on their meaning and shaped their lives according to the Beatitudes’ wisdom. Rebekah Eklund joins Lynn Cohick to explore how the beatitudes embody the whole gospel.  They also take the Beatitudes as a window to the humanity of Jesus.

    Deconstructing Evil with Ingrid Faro - AJ 23

    ✨Take the first step to investigate 🔦 if Northern Seminary is the right fit for you to advance your ability to lead the church and engage the world - https://www.seminary.edu/ajapply 


    How are believers to respond when life seems to fall apart? Where does evil come from? Ingrid Faro takes on all these questions and more with Lynn Cohick.  Ingrid invites us to expect evil and suffering in the same way we see God take on evil in the Bible. Bad things are inevitable in life and evil comes from multiple angles. The good news is that God provides His people a way to deconstruct evil and live a wholehearted life focused on God's goodness in a broken world.
