Sound Insight Presentation Edition: On today’s podcast, hear the second talk in a four-part conference presentation: “Marriage, A Gift from God” by Dr. Tom Curran.
Dr. Tom Curran continues to reflect on the convicting message he heard at Mass last Sunday. Tom shares the fresh insight he heard in the confessional about impatience and talks about two approaches to responding to the stewardship of God’s graces: 1.) “You only live once” and 2.) “Don’t miss the moment.”
Dr. Tom Curran asks “What’s going on?” as he shares challenging and encouraging stories about what has (and hasn’t) changed in Boston over the past 35 years. Tom reads insights from the biography on John Adams by David McCullough, on the many sacrifices of the Founding Fathers for the sake of future generations.
Dr. Tom Curran reflects on the scripture passage from Acts 4:32-37, “Life in the Christian Community,” and discusses the concept of ‘stewardship versus ownership’ over possessions. Tom talks about two forms of love and how to be an A.C.E. of love: 1.) Be! Affirming, Celebrating and Embracing, 2.) Become! Accountability, Challenge and Exhortation.
Dr. Tom Curran talks about the theology of repentance. Tom shares a story about an experience in confession that brought tears to his eyes, reflects on yesterday’s Gospel reading about The Rich Man (Mark 10: 17) and talks about three levels of repentance: in actions, in attitudes and in awareness.
