Christian Mysticism, I am not afraid.

Christian Mysticism, I am not afraid.

ATKW leads off this podcast with a discussion around the question, "Can the fearless teach [something beneficial to] the fearful?"  The question arose after a Christian presenter commented during a lesson that Christians should be cautious of Christian mysticism.  As one who has received benefits and insight from studying Christian mystics, I knew there was nothing of which to be afraid.  It is understood in the Christian tradition as involving union with God (www.britannica.com).  In my experience, Christian mysticism has added value to my Christian journey.  I am grateful to have been gifted as a seeker, one who is unafraid to learn and experience Christian traditions & practices that are not my own.  NOTES: The scriptures read in this podcast:  Acts 3:1-9, II Timothy 1:3-7.
