This week’s podcast features a talk by the Dean of Christ Church, Oxford, the Very Revd Professor Martyn Percy, given at the Church Times Festival of Preaching, which took place virtually last week. His talk is titled “The Verb of God made flesh — Jesus, love, and learning in a post-Covid Church.”
“Instead of constantly trying to present a Church triumphant, what about a Church that is receptive, learning, and humble? Not a Church anymore of monologue, but a Church of dialogue. Instead of a Church stuck in the broadcast mode, what about a Church that actually is in reception mode? Humble enough and self-aware enough to know that it does not have all the answers, and can truly listen and learn.”
