“In a time when we are more aware than ever of religious diversity, both in the larger society and in the church as well, it is good to remember that diversity has been with us from the beginning of the Christian movement. In these talks, I will imagine an intersection of thoroughfares with a church at each corner – four corners and four churches: the churches of St. Mark, St. Mathew, St. Luke, and St. John. In each presentation we will spend a few minutes in the pews of each of these churches, experiencing their different understandings of Jesus and of the Christian life.”
