Making Visible The Kingdom Through Convergence

Augustine & The Catechumenate

Continuing with the “Ancient Wisdom Anglican Futures” conference, Dr. William Harmless is speaking on Augustine and the Ancient Catechumenate and is taking us through the culture and context, the sights, smells, and sounds of the Catechumenate in Augustine’s Church.  A brilliant speaker , I love his call to let mysteries be mysterious, i.e. don’t explain the mystery away.  We need to think like the great movie critics who have the ability to captivate and stir the imagination without spoiling the plot so that their readers run out to see whatever film they’re writing about.  We’re irritated by those critics that spoil the ending and lose all interest in the film they’re writing about.  We need to captivate and draw in without spoiling the mystery.
