• Episode 21: The Trinity

    27 MAY. 2024 · The most basic of Christian beliefs, the Trinity, is also one of the most confusing.  How can a god be three-in-one?  A lot of people wonder but do so privately, assuming that everyone else has it figured out.  But that's what this podcast is for, to give space to explore the things we're all questioning.  Join the Unfolding Wings team to get an honest look at some (nowhere close to all!) of the questions you may have about the Trinity, to help you unfold your own wings. For more reading, some of the books mentioned in this episode: The Trinity (Guides to Theology) by Roger Olson and Christopher Hall Triune Atonement: Christ's Healing for Sinners, Victims, and the Whole Creation by Andrew Sung Park

  • Episode 15: Marriage

    26 JUN. 2023 · Join the young adult crew again (with wise elder!) to explore what marriage means, why we should (or not) get married, what it's all about. Since many of us will get married at some point in our lives, it's probably a good idea to have a good sense of why we're doing it. Remember, the folks at Charlton City UMC love doing this for you... but we don't necessarily represent the views of the church or even, all the time, of ourselves. We simply want to create a safe, meaningful space for you to reflect on how you might unfold your own wings.
