Carey Centre for Lifelong Learning Event

Abide and Go: Spirituality and Mission in the Gospel of John - Auckland (Carey Centre for Lifelong Learning)

A day of engagement and encouragement for church leaders with New Testament scholar: Professor Michael J. Gorman. Thursday 4 July, Auckland.

Michael Gorman will appear via an online link to present and facilitate discussion in two 2-hour blocks, with group discussion in-between facilitated by pastor Ken Keyte (recent Master's graduate specialising in Gorman's work).

This day is limited to 12 people, with the topic of the day being based on Gorman's most recent book: Abide and Go: Missional Theosis in the Gospel of John, described by the publisher as:

"The Gospel of John would seem to be both the “spiritual Gospel” and a Gospel that promotes Christian mission. Some interpreters, however, have found John to be the product of a sectarian community that promotes a very narrow view of Christian mission and advocates neither love of neighbor nor love of enemy. In this book for both the academy and the church, Michael Gorman argues that John has a profound spirituality that is robustly missional, and that it can be summarized in the paradoxical phrase “Abide and go,” from John 15. Disciples participate in the divine love and life, and therefore in the life-giving mission of God manifested in the ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus. As God’s children, disciples become more and more like this missional God as they become like his Son by the work of the Spirit. This spirituality, argues Gorman, can be called missional theosis."
