The Reverend Doyt L. Conn, Jr.
This four-part series will explore what the St. Peter of Damascus called the four constituents of the body and how they allow a person to live naturally within the kingdom of God. These constituents of the body are not physical attributes, rather soul oriented attributes. They consist of moral judgement, self-restraint, justice and courage. Each of these constituents work in harmony with the other to establish and maintain a healthy soul; with the secondary benefit of creating healthy communities. As with all things in the Christian lifestyle, each of the four constituents have a spiritual exercise that can strengthen them. They also have associated with them forces which seeks to draw them away from a healthy state of being. The thesis of this course is that if we understand and live the four actionable attributes of the soul, we will be able to reknit together our polarized society. This series will have both lecture content and discussion opportunities.
