Christian Mysticism, I am not afraid.
ATKW leads off this podcast with a discussion around the question, "Can the fearless teach [something beneficial to] the fearful?"  The question arose after a Christian presenter commented during a lesson that Christians should be cautious of Christian mysticism.  As one who has received benefits and insight from studying Christian mystics, I knew there was nothing of which to be afraid.  It is understood in the Christian tradition as involving union with God (  In my experience, Christian mysticism has added value to my Christian journey.  I am grateful to have been gifted as a seeker, one who is unafraid to learn and experience Christian traditions & practices that are not my own.  NOTES: The scriptures read in this podcast:  Acts 3:1-9, II Timothy 1:3-7.
