God, Church and Ourselves: Reasons to Hope - Jack Costello, S.J.

As the new millennium advances many of us find ourselves tossed around by fresh hopes but new confusions. Our view of God and God’s work in the world is changing. The Church of Vatican II leaves us feeling partly at home but with our children painfully on the outside. Our culture is opening up new freedoms but also splintering into ‘cultures,’ none of which is able to offer clear social vision or direction.

This series will explore some of the promises and pressures we face as Christians seeking ways to understand and to help heal the world.
