Tihomir Kukolja shared a message “The Way of Jesus” at the 2017 EDI – Economic Diplomacy and Integrity Forum in Fuzine, Croatia, July 2017. Time: 28:24 min.
The Way of Jesus: With a few adaptations, for the purpose of contextualizing it for the listening audience, I shared the message “The Way of Jesus” several times throughout 2017. I shared the same message with the participants attending the 2017 EDI – Economic Diplomacy and Integrity Forum (audio) at the end of July 2017 in Fuzine, Croatia. And then in August I shared it with the 2017 ROM – Renewing Our Minds participants (video). The available video segment features the middle part of the message presented at ROM 2017. Take 11:20 minutes, listen to the message and let me know your thoughts about the message and its implications. A message to EDI 2017 and ROM 2017 friends: let’s continue the conversation about the centrality of Jesus in everything we are, believe and practice. Video recorded by Silvia Nichita.
Additional thoughts: One day Jesus took three of his disciples – Peter, James and John – to a solitary mountain for a special educational moment. There the three disciples had a unique encounter not only with Jesus, but also with Moses and Elijah, the two pillars of the Old Testament religion. Delighted and afraid disciples wanted to turn the mountain into a holy shrine. The moment Peter suggested the idea to Jesus, everything changed. “A bright cloud covered” the terrified disciples. They fell to the ground and heard the voice speaking from the cloud: “This is my Son with whom I am well pleased. Listen to him!” A moment later they looked up and “they saw no one else but Jesus.” Matthew 17:1-8. In other words, no one and nothing else mattered any more except Jesus.
