The Nourished Identity

The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson | John 6:1-15

Bread is good, yet it cannot fully satisfy on its own. When Jesus feeds the 5,000 on the mountainside, the point of this miraculous sign is not the feeding itself, but the deeper reality of Jesus’ own identity: he is the Bread of Life. What does this mean, and how do we get it wrong? How does Jesus nourish the human soul? Join Peet Dickinson as he reviews this familiar image, ferrets out its strange resonances, and finds in Jesus the very source of life.

The Resurrected Identity

The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson | Romans 7:12-25

The difference between animation and live-action in film is infinitely wide, yet in our suspension of disbelief can be uncannily similar. Likewise, true life in God and a captive life in sin can seem similar, and yet are utterly different. In Romans 7, the Apostle Paul writes on the struggle between his godly desire and his sin. What resolution can come from this conflict? Is there any hope in his “body of death”? Join Peet Dickinson as he considers Paul’s thought, and finds hope in the God who gives us a resurrection identity.
