Reflections on Study Leave 2

As I’ve been surrounding myself with writers from 4th
century church life I’ve been struck by a couple of differences between their
time and ours:  

Emotions: They poured their emotions into right
doctrine (eg: Basil claiming that those who don’t get the Deity of the Holy
Spirit are ‘excessively stupid’) we look for emotional connection with God
through worship, preaching and church community.

Daily living: They look for godliness in this age
whilst preparing the soul for eternity, we look for resources to live now in the
hope eternity will work out OK.
