November 3 Lesson: Forming Christian Culture –  Culture and the fullness of the Trinity Part 1: Childhood and The Son

“The Word became flesh at a particular moment in time; He grew from an infant into a man over a span of years. Nevertheless, the Word is eternally begotten of the Father; the Word is eternally the Father’s child.” This quote by Orthodox Christian professor and author Vigen Guroian has a profound implication to how we understand our childhood, the raising of our own children, and how this effects the culture of our home and all around us. In this week’s class, we will discuss what Christ being the eternal Son of God means to use in our roles as children and parents, what about modern psychological and sociological theory on children and childhood is compatible and not compatible with our theological understanding, and the differences between childlikeness and childishness.
