This Michaelmas presentation begins with imaginations of Christ as the image of the invisible God (e.g. Colossians 1:15, John 14:9, etc.), and Archangel Michael as the countenance of Christ (e.g. Rudolf Steiner, Christ at the Time of the Mystery of Golgotha and Christ in the Twentieth Century). To this is added observations about what it means in our time to be identified as a "Michaelic" human being -- that is, people whose visage, quality of presence, and actions manifest the archangelic presence and activity of Michael. This leads to considerations about steps and stages along the path to becoming the countenance of this mighty spiritual being.
This presentation was given in the online forum provided by the Front Range Anthroposophical Café (FRAC) on Friday, September 25, 2020.
After an opening meditation, Lelan presented his initial content for 40 minutes. The gathering proceeded with a Q&A time with Lelan, his final thoughts, and a closing verse. After the formal portion of the evening, there was an informal conversation around the topic of the evening. All the conversation that is germane to the topic is included in the video replay.
