Revolutions of Faith

A Journey through the History of the Revolutionaries of the Church

In this course we'll be traveling through the history of the Church and we'll talk about people who have, by their lives and their witness, changed the way we talk about God and ourselves.

 

From Martin Luther to Martin Luther King Jr., from St. Augustine to Nelson Mandela, and from Julian of Norwich to Mother Theresa.

How do the lives and teachings of these revolutionaries impact our daily spiritual walk? 

What does it take to be part of the Spirit's transformation of the world, and how does this transform our own hearts?
