Loading...

Liberal Protestantism in the ?90s: Forrester Church

Throughout the ’80s, we heard a lot from the religious right about virtue and sin, goodness and evil, the Bible and the devil. Forrester Church speaks from the other side, the liberal wing of Protestantism. As a college student, he was certain about a lot of things, including the fact that his father, the late Senator Frank Church of Idaho, was wrong about everything. Now, as the dynamic pastor of All Souls Unitarian Church, he confronts the ambiguities and contradictions of a ministry in the heart of New York City. In this program with Bill Moyers, Church explores why even the faithful should cultivate their doubts, how we should question our virtues, and what we could learn from an evening with Jerry Falwell.

Peter & Paul and the Christian Revolution - Part 1

With their Messiah executed, their dreams crushed, and their cause deemed subversive by the strongest empire the world had ever seen, Jesus's followers faced a bleak future. Their movement seemed destined for extinction. Incredibly, though, Jesus's survivors turned defeat to victory; devastation to jubilation. By one account, it happened on the shores of the Sea of Galilee where Simon Peter and others envisioned the risen Jesus. It was an explosive moment of hope. For the sighting convinced them that Jesus had not, in fact, been beaten, that in his death, Jesus was ushering in God's Kingdom on Earth. Re-infused with hope and determination, Peter became an indomitable figure who would unite his group into a tight community of ardent believers. Dark days were coming, however -- days of [...]

Peter & Paul and the Christian Revolution - Part 2

Spread outside Judea by missionaries like Peter and Paul, the Jesus movement caught on quickly among Jews and non-Jews around the Roman Empire. With success, however, came challenges: challenges from hostile locals, challenges from imperial forces, and challenges from conflicting ideas within the movement itself. Should Gentile converts become Jews? Should they be circumcised? These were hot-button issues in the first century and they threatened to tear the young movement apart. Paul-adamant that there was no time for conversions-fell into open and angry confrontation with some of the oldest Jesus followers. Peter, it seems, tried to mediate the conflict. "The Rock" became a stepping stone between the camps and, for a crucial period, helped keep the movement together. But the center [...]
