Week 4: Cages and Fences – Surrendering to Christ

 

Through a delving into Scripture and human history this midpoint session of the course explores a twofold aspect of the Christian journey: the radicality of Jesus and His teachings as well as the human tendency to try to contain Him. Rather than resisting Jesus through attempts to cage Him, viewers are invited to see the abundant life possible once they surrender to Jesus and set Him free to enter every aspect of their lives. It is shown that through such an uncaging of Christ, a new level of personal freedom is reached.

“Father James’ talk about surrendering all parts of my life to God was really good.”

 

“The whole things was very relatable, it was good/interesting having the way I domesticate God confronted.”

 

“I liked Fr. James’ reflections. It was good to reflect on the different kinds of cages I might be using to contain God.”

 

“We often don’t realize that our relationship with God is often on our own terms.”
