This Sunday’s lecture | The parable of the talents: a lesson in praxis

Last Sunday we looked at aspects of Jesus’ life through Gramsci’s concept of the Organic Intellectual. Tomorrow we build upon that foundation, bringing it home, and reflecting on our lives as believers in the 21st century.

In 1944, while Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s was in prison by the Nazi regime, he wrote a letter a friend. In this letter he asked some profound questions with regards to the trajectory of Christianity. He presciently said:

We are moving towards a completely religionless time; people as they are now simply cannot be religious anymore. Even those who honestly describe themselves as ‘religious’ do not in the least act up to it, and so they presumably mean something quite different by ‘religious’

To this end, the following questions come to mind:
– How can we live out our faith effectively within our communities?

  • How can the church remain relevant now and in the next generation?
  • What does the parable of the talents mean to us today?

So join us tomorrow as we explore themes around these questions.
