New Podcast –God and the Community of the Resurrection …
Hello podcast listener,
The 50th audio podcast in CMF Public Media’s Heard in Central Florida (HCF) series has been posted on-line Wednesday, February 15, 2012.
God and The Community of the Resurrection. Hear a presentation on God and the Community of the Resurrection by noted scholar and spiritual writer Dr. John Dominic Crossan. This was part of the event Three Days of Justice, Love and Art, a symposium sponsored by Gladdening Light, a non-profit organization created to explore the nexus between faith and art. Dr. Crossan’s remarks explore the image of the resurrection from the Eastern Orthodox perspective and its theological implications for the Christian concept of community and justice. (length – 01:04:36)
Dr. Crossan is an eminent first century Jesus scholar and was author of many books including The Revolutionary Jesus and The Greatest Prayer. His remarks on the communal resurrection and justice were presented on Saturday February 4, 2012. This was one of two presentations he made as part of the Gladdening Light Symposium held at the Winter Park Civic center in Winter Park, Florida.
In addition to lectures by John Dominic Crossan, the three day conference included four practicing artists: Cherokee carver and storyteller Freeman Owle, photo essayist Brendan Bannon, iconic painter Trent Tomengo and community choreographer Barrie Barton. There were exhibits and presentations by these artists throughout the days’ events. According to the conference “their work supported Crossan’s vision of God’s longing for a just and loving community, representative of all.”
The 2012 Gladdening Light Symposium concluded on Sunday February 5 with an ecumenical worship service with a homily by Dr. Crossan on the Community of Justice and Love.
Heard in Central Florida’s web portal and its collaboration with important local civic organizations is another step in CMF’s mission to reflect yet more local issues and voices that matter through the production of audio recordings of local events addressing important – and often little publicized – issues such as this event, and chamber of commerce luncheon speakers, voter forums, and civic club speeches on issues about which listeners may benefit from greater awareness.
