Dr. Cheryl Bridges Johns

May 19, 2019

Our guest this week is Dr. Cheryl Bridges Johns. Dr. Johns looks at a passage from Hebrews and delivers a word for the RCC family -- calling us into the mystery of Christ. One portal into the mystery of God is the Word -- the logos revealed in Scripture. Many see the Bible in a very manageable, two-dimensional way, but Dr. Johns reminds us that it is multi-dimensional. We can meet God in that space. Scripture is sacramental -- it points to the reality of Jesus, and it is a means for God to enter into our lives. Mysteriously, it feeds. It heals. It is powerful. And it brings freedom. May we embrace the many dimensions of that mystery. The worship journey for this week: "Re-enchanting the text." Hebrews 4:8-13.

Dr. Johns is a professor at Pentecostal Theological Seminary in Cleveland, Tennessee. She serves in the Robert E. Fisher Chair of Spiritual Renewal. She is a frequent speaker at seminaries and universities across the globe and the author of two books and countless articles and papers.
