Meeting Jesus: Christ in Tradition and Traditions
October 2, 2008
Presenter: Francine Cardman, STM associate professor of historical theology and Church history
We meet Jesus Christ on the way, in the world, through the relationships and communities that are the contexts of our lives, through experiences that are immediate and particular but are also part of larger contexts and communities that extend across cultures and across centuries. This offers multiple, rich traditions of practice and reflection within which we may encounter Jesus Christ and continue to hand on the Tradition of God’s saving love. This presentation explores the contours of this broad terrain and examples of its diverse possibilities and perspectives.
