Orthodoxy and Evangelical Renewal

Speaking more than 400 times at various colleges and cathedrals, Frederica Mathewes-Green has added Gordon College to her list. Mathewes-Green, author of eight books, has also written for publications including The Washington Post, Christianity Today, the Smithsonian and the Los Angeles Times.

In her address Mathewes-Green shared various impediments that affect Christians when we talk about God. Her first point touched on how humans divide the head and heart and are not able to speak of the experience of the presence of God. Mathewes-Green stressed the importance of both the head and the heart, which cannot be separated. Pointing to Matthew 15:19, Mathewes-Green reiterated that thoughts come out of the heart.
