- Paul Tillich - "The Flight From God" (November 17, 1957)
We are, in the very core of our being, in flight from God. There are many ways in which we mask our flight from God––our work, religious devotion, skepticism––but these point back to our fundamental restlessness and fear of truly encountering God. Yet, in all of these roads of our attempted escape, God is able to arrest us and welcome us into God's abundant life. (Abstract created by Duke Divinity School staff.)
Sermon start time: (Part 1) 00:28. Sermon end time: (Part 1) 32:37.
Key quotation: “Man is fleeing from God. He is fleeing from God even in the church, in the place in which we are supposed to be arrested by the presence of God. Even there we are in flight from Him.”
