Ambidextrous Christianity - Participant
A "Two-Handed" Approach to the Life of Faith
Nine-Session Bible Study by the Rev. Chris Brekke
Martin Luther was a champion of “dialectic” or “paradoxical” thinking — the idea that two truths sometimes need to be kept in tension. For example, as you drive your car down the highway, you have to be able to turn both left and right. The same is true in our Christian lives. We trust that the truth of God’s Word teaches us how to steer wisely. But it is a dialectical “two-handed” approach to our faith journey that helps us as Christ’s followers to navigate life without going into the ditches on either side.
In this nine-session Bible Study, we look at nine key questions of faith and life, letting our Lord direct us in steering on the narrow path of faith. In studying God's Word with other believers, we seek to grow in our ability to move forward in our journey together, no matter what the road may present us with.
