“A visionary light settled in her eyes. … Upon it a vast horde of souls were rumbling toward heaven. … (And) she could see by their shocked and altered faces that even their virtues were being burned away.”
~ Flannery O'Connor, "Revelation"
These courses, offered as premium content for subscribers and available for a nominal fee beginning in late spring/early summer of 2021, are culled and curated from Sunday morning lectures I taught at the First Presbyterian Church of Hollywood from 2016-2020 for a class called, not coincidentally, "Breaking News."
It is my hope that the content of these lectures (over 100 in total), given in a particular context at a particular time and place, will nonetheless translate across time and space to where you happen to be right now, as they speak to the fundamental essence of human nature, which has remained unchanged from our beginnings and which we continue to experience in both exile and wonder.
