Show Notes

We live in a world where technology has vastly expanded human potential. We live longer, healthier lives and can do more in less time than ever before. But we are still human – finite, fallible creatures with limits given to us by our Creator. When we forget our limits or, worse, reject them, we rebel against our humanity. Why are we so restless? Because we've forgotten that we are creatures.

At the conclusion of John’s talk, co-hosts Center for Public Christianity Executive Director Josh Chatraw and New City Fellows alumnus Micah Vandegrift are joined by special guest Catherine Doster, a New City Fellows alumnae, to briefly reflect on John’s teaching and discuss how it applies to daily life. So, keep listening!
