We begin our month long look at Matthew 11:28-30 – three well known verses that perhaps offer us precisely what we need at this moment. But the invitation must be received. We must first admit that we are in need of rest.
In our weariness we hear this ancient, persistent invitation: ‘come’ and find what you’ve been looking for all along.
We consider the need for awe and wonder in our lives, and how it can help us find our purpose and place in the world.
Elliot leads us in a conversation on quantum mechanics. Yep. You heard right. We consider how something like a photon, which is both a wave and a particle, might help us think differently about many things in our complex world.
Elliot leads us through the incredible process of a star’s death, which gives way to the building blocks of life. This awe-inspiring cycle is what we see throughout creation. Life coming after loss and death. Resurrection. What might this mean for us in our day to day lives?
We begin a four week series looking at incredible aspects of creation, and what they have to teach us about our lives together. This first week’s takeaway: Don’t be a Western Cedar. Note: the first few minutes were not recorded. You can find more about the research we talked about at first by watching this […]
We took a week to look at a story we have likely heard of before from Luke 9: the feeding of the 5000 and what it might have to say to us in this moment.
Difficulty and possibility so often exist hand in hand, perhaps especially in liminal spaces. We see this again as look at Philip’s story from Acts 8.
Below are the emails we’ve sent out since George Floyd’s murder and the protests that follow. Each email has a number of resources to keep us moving towards becoming Anti-Racists. May 31st Here’s a video we used in worship as a prayer of lament. June 9th Over the last two weeks, large and consistent protests […]
1 Corinthians 8 and 10 show us that when we are in a liminal space, there is newfound opportunity to let go — to admit that we might not know it all — and that we might need each other (even when we disagree) more than we realize.
Week 7 – Acts 2:1-13, 42-47, 4:32-37 We consider what a life of radical generosity looks like in the midst of a global pandemic and rampant racism.
Below is a letter from SaraJane and Micah, inviting anyone to enter into a conversation around how white people can become anti-racists: people who are actively working against racism in their own lives and in our world. Dear friends and family, What a time we find ourselves in. Over the past month, we have sat […]
We look at the way God used a liminal space to prepare the first Christians for the future that was coming. John 21.
This week we look at Moses’ story as he journeyed through the in-between on more than one occassion. What do we learn from his life? (Exodus 2 and 3).
The Bible is full of stories of people and communities who have had to journey through liminal spaces. Today, are in a liminal space too — caught between the world as we knew it and an unknown future. What do these stories have to teach us? This week we look at Israel, as they journeyed […]
Here’s a portion of our time together on Easter! https://vimeo.com/407675601
We’ve all been there. In fact, we’re there right now. Liminal spaces are in-between spaces. They are seasons in which we find ourselves between one reality that has ended and another that has not yet begun. Covid-19 has caused life as we knew it to end. The world is simply not, nor will it be, […]
