Discontent with many of the messages that come from churches these days, Peter Fitch decides to focus on teachings that come from Jesus Himself. Here he looks at the first few Beatitudes from Matthew’s Sermon on the Mount. This talk includes ideas about poverty of spirit, the importance of suffering and, especially, the quality of gentleness or meekness. Other voices that are presented come from Aristotle, William Barclay, Desmond Tutu, Khalil Gibran, Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, Thich Nhat Hanh, and Pirke Avot (the core of Judaic wisdom). Of course, there are also thoughtful ideas from people who were in attendance.
