WHEN WE CAN'T GATHER
Discipleship Study with Bishop Whitmore and Fr. Hanyzewski
This study has ended, but links below allow you to listen and enjoy.
A simple definition of a disciple is a follower or pupil of a great master/leader/teacher/philosopher. In addition, a disciple is a learner who follows a movement or teacher and helps to spread their teaching. Because of our Baptismal vows and Confirmation commitment we transform into disciples that Jesus commands—“make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20). But what does it mean especially when we are no longer that baby or young adult following our parents’ instructions? What does discipleship look like where I stand today? Our new situation can be that of a husband or wife in a new marriage or a parent with a household to maintain. Maybe we are empty nesters, or someone looking to retire soon, or someone living their golden years. At any point along this journey we carry discipleship with us—this movement or teaching. The word discipleship may feel hollow and out of touch at times, but through this six-week study, Bishop Whitmore will explore this topic in a holistic manner, looking at the Old and New Testament, the early church, and the modern church. This six-week study starts September 8 at 7:00pm.
