Outtake: January E. R. I.

Another short outtake from the January session of the Emmaus Road Initiative:
Precisely because the content of the Christian revelation is the mystery of unimpeded giving and receiving of love within the Trinity, its transmission necessarily depends on a relationship of unguarded trust on the part of the recipient – which, of course, places a special onus on the transmitter, for if the recipient is docile to the transmission and the transmitter betrays the heightened responsibilities that this docility requires, he or she stands under the judgment of Jesus’ words: “If any of you put a stumbling-block before one of these little ones who believe in me, it would be better for you if a great millstone were fastened around your neck and you were drowned in the depth of the sea.” (Matt. 18:6)
More to follow when there's time. When the CDs, free downloadable audio files and streaming audio versions of the January session are available we will send an email notice to those on our email list. To receive an email, type your email address in the box at the top of the right-hand column.
