  6. Lost and Found: Playing Hide n Seek with God Session 1
    Adam and Eve famously hid from God in the Garden after they sinned. God sought them out, calling Adam by name. After the Resurrection, Christ appears to His disciples in an unpredictable manner. We ourselves are told to “ask,” to “seek,” and to “knock.” There is a mystery in this movement of hiding and discovery that marks both the lives of sinners as well as the life of God. What do we make of this? What is its purpose. How do we cooperate in a helpful manner? Each of the talks will explore aspects of this dynamic.

  20. Job
    In this lecture, Fr. Joseph discusses the Old Testament story of Job, renowned for his patience and hope in God.  The lecture was the last in the Profiles in Faith series, which Fr. Joe delivered at St. Anthony Church circa 1987.  It is perhaps the most relevant of his lectures for a world in crisis.
  21. Jeremiah
    Fr. Joseph delivers a lecture on the very human “Doomsday Prophet” Jeremiah.  Jeremiah’s story, as Fr. Joe explains, reminds us all - clergy and laity alike - that our engagement with God is measured in terms of fidelity, not “success.”  Fr. Joe presented the lecture in 1987 at St. Anthony’s Church as part of his Profiles in Faith series.
  22. Esther
    In this lecture, Fr. Joseph relates the dramatic story of Esther, Queen of Persia, an Old Testament heroine whose bravery in the face of death saves the Hebrews from destruction.  Fr. Joe presented the lecture at St. Anthony’s Church in 1987 as part of his Profiles in Faith series.
  23. Elisha
    In this two-part lecture, Fr. Joseph Allen discusses two key prophets of the Old Testament whose stories are inseparable: Elijah and Elisha. Part one focuses on the “radical” Prophet Elijah.  As Fr. Joe reveals through the story of Elijah, although God may present Himself in the spectacular, stories of faith are more often found in quieter moments of personal crisis.  Part two is focused on Elijah’s disciple Elisha, whose own story of faith, Fr. Joe explains, begins when God presents the young man with the free choice of whether or not to pick up the mantle of his departed master.  Fr. Joe delivered the lecture in 1987 at St. Anthony’s Church as part of his Lenten series, Profiles in Faith.

  25. King David
    In this lecture, Fr. Joseph explains King David as the Old Testament’s great “Renaissance Man” and, more importantly, a “man after God’s own heart.”  The lecture was one of those Fr. Joe delivered as part of his Profiles in Faith series at St. Anthony Church circa 1987.
