Thanks for the URL. I'm on session 4 tomorrow. So will a new 'denomination' be required to have a fellowship which will actually embrace such a sweeping theological change, as the video series speaks of? Paul seemed pretty convinced in session one that this was God's initiation of a new move of God in the orthodox church. But I know personally how fearful "stiff necked" orthodoxy can be toward change. Since the URL series was 2 years ago I'm curious as to what's happened since? I know I live in the sticks, but is something going on that I don't know about in other places? Or was Paul, even two years ago, really anticipating the movie would be the spark to really get a fire going?
