Public Address Series with Dr. Jim Houston

Sunday, May 15, 2016 at 5:30PM - Friday, May 20, 2016 at 9:30PM PST

This event has now ended. Please view this page to see all our upcoming events.

Please join us as Dr. Jim Houston explains how the Triune God empowers us to live out our Christian identity more fully in every sphere of life. All are invited to attend this series of four public addresses.


The Christian's Public Life, as Guided by the Fellowship of the Holy Spirit
Sunday, May 15 at 5:30 pm, North Point Alliance Church
Monday, May 16 at 7:30 pm, EFCC Kong Fok Church

Living in a fluid postmodern society, do Christians carry several identities? How did the early Fathers, like Augustine and Gregory the Great, act both locally as Pastors and widely as Bishops within Christendom? What can their political theologies teach us about the challenges we face as leaders in business and political governance today? How does the Holy Spirit play in both our public and our private lives today? 


The Daily Life of the Christian, Indwelt by the Love of God the Father
Wednesday, May 18 at 7:30 pm, North Point Alliance Church

We are invoking the mystery of God as the triune God of grace in these addresses, as the unique relations which Christians share and exercise in all aspects of their lives. This address will explore how we can be freed from the surrounding secularism by more deeply embracing the Sacramental calendar, which we use nominally for Sundays, Christmas, and Easter. We will also explore how the Lord’s Prayer is emotionally misunderstood.


The Christian's Family Life in the Freedom of the Sonship of Christ
Thursday, May 19 at 7:30 pm, North Point Alliance Church

How much of our social consciousness is dominated by fear? How does it affect all of our family relationships? What then is the meaning of "freedom in Christ’s Sonship"? Why is "Christian consciousness" becoming more significant than simply thinking about the right doctrines of our orthodoxy?


The Distinctiveness of Christian Friendship
Friday, May 20 at 7:30 pm, North Point Alliance Church

Friendship is a universal need and value that is expressed in many practices, some of which will be explored in this address. Does friendship mean the same thing in countries as diverse as Britain, Russia, Australia, and Hong Kong? How has Christianity exercised friendship differently from the Classical world of Rome? Why have some periods of history emphasized friendship more than others? If friendship is becoming increasingly emphasized by young people to-day, how are our church communities challenging our customary practices?
