Learning - a love of truth?(Christ: Holy Crisis series)🎧(50mins )

Father Tom often spoke of the gifts of wealth, learning and power – especially in the first talk in this series, “Christ: Holy Crisis”. Here Fr Tom takes three different approaches to learning: first, Jesus’ attitude to the Torah and the love of learning of the scribes and lawyers of his day. He urged them and us to go beyond the security of our mindsets – to always seek truth in humility. Then a look at education and the dangers of subjecting a love of learning to utilitarian economic use – again urging a love of truth for its own sake. And thirdly knowing the Unknowable – journeying from knowing about God to knowing God, who is beyond knowing, and in whom we come to know our true selves for the first time… And finally a postscript on the meaning of redemption.
