Here’s a video that the CTS folks made when I was on campus a few weeks back, talking about what mysticism is and how we’ll explore the topic in a retreat setting:

This video was filmed in the chapel at Columbia Seminary. I love the stained glass! My wife teases me because I keep looking over my glasses — the cameras were mounted high on the wall, and, well, I just kept looking over my glasses!

    Thank you for talking about Christian Mysticism. The more we are aware of God working in and through everything, especially within ourselves, the more God’s presence can replace prior limitations and disharmonies with good.

    This is a fine picture, but it’s not a video. Only one picture. Is there an actual viedo?

    Thanks for the video, you’re a gifted speaker (glasses or no). Wish I were in your neck of the woods so I could pop in and attend one of your retreats or talks. If you’re ever in Minnesota, please let it be known :)
