We all have a cultural heritage. How does it affect us? What are right ways to view our heritage? Kyle Stoltzfus wants us to recognize traditions that are helpful and essential in Christian living.
“When we build with heritage, we recognize tools that we have been handed. We learn to exercise ourselves and apply ourselves to the tools that we actually have in our hands.”
In future episodes, Kyle will expand on understanding our heritage and legacy.

Does being human require tradition? What are examples of tradition in Scripture? Kyle Stoltzfus explains the necessity of tradition in Christianity.
“This is about benefiting from, appreciating, and participating in a cultural legacy larger than oneself. The central burden is that we are recipients of spiritual and moral wealth. We can respond in a variety of ways to this: indulgently, critically, or constructively.”
This is the second part of a three-part series with Kyle. Consider listening to episode 127 if you have not already.

It is impossible to live without tradition. How can we minimize the liabilities? How can we use tradition for our benefit?
“The most destructive traditions that are there claim not to be traditions. Our job is many times to excavate a little bit behind and say, ‘Well, there is actually continuity here. This is a tradition too: here are the strengths, here are the liabilities.”
This is the final episode of a three-part series with Kyle Stoltzfus about tradition and heritage. Consider listening to episodes 127 and 129 first.
