With Dr. Rebecca DeYoung
Contemporary culture seems to trivialize the "seven deadly sins," or vices, as if they have no serious moral or spiritual implications. Dr. DeYoung clears this misconception by exploring the traditional meanings of gluttony, sloth, lust, and others and their connection to the Christian tradition of spiritual formation. She will give a practical understanding of how the vices shape our culture today and how to eliminate the deeply rooted patterns of sin that are at work in our lives. This program will be live-streamed at
