New Series starts next Week – 7 Deadly Sins: the Exploration of a Complex Life
I was approached a while ago, at a dinner party, by someone from Friends Church and they asked me, “What is Friends Church take on the 7 Deadly Sins?” After which we had a rousing debate on what is Pride, is it a bad thing, should some people have more of it, and where did the idea of 7 Deadly Sins come from anyways.
That conversation continued for days with that group, and then for months we read and talked about it as a teaching team. We realized that maybe the 7 Deadly Sins have been causing confusion within christian communities for years:
People not honoring their skills for fear of Pride
People not speaking up about injustice for fear of Anger
People’s sexuality being seen a bad because of teachings around Lust
Life is more complex than just saying something is always bad, or always good. So we are going to tackle these 7 areas of our lives, to show their complexities, to show where we might need to follow the advice of our spiritual ancestors, but also where we might need to ignore them all together.
Life is complex, this discussion will help.
