Theology on Tap


God created us with a heart and with desires. Ultimately, God’s plan for our happiness is rooted in the fulfillment of our deepest desires. However, trying to fulfill the call to holiness often causes us to confront our earthly desires in moments that are challenging, because it frequently requires us to act in ways that seem contrary to what we desire. Why is this the case? Why, if God created us this way, do we experience desires and movements of our heart which seem so contrary to His call? Experiencing this conflict can sometimes cause us to question the validity of our Christian faith, or at least to view the faith as something that is to be lived without desires or passions. Join us for a presentation and discussion on the call to live a passionate and desire-filled life of Christian holiness.
