The summer sermon series is based on the book Life Worth Living: A Guide to What Matters by Miroslav Volf, Matthew Croasmun, and Ryan McAnnally-Linz. The book is based on a course offered in Yale’s Humanities Program and taught by the authors.
In the 1980's there was a well-known commercial for V8 Fruit and Vegetable drinks. The characters in the commercials all walked around on a 45-degree angle. The idea was that if they only had time for their fruits and vegetables, they would "keep their diet straight". At the end of the commercial, the actor would drink a V8 and be walking upright again. Like our bodies, our souls need intentional "fueling" too. We hope that this fall series will be a spiritual V8 for the soul. we will ask questions like, "What is the soul?" "Where did it come from?" "What will nourish it these days?" We will also offer nutrient-rich disciplines that you can come back to over the course of your life to "keep your spiritual diet straight." Join us this fall for "Soul Food"!
