    Just How Much Do I Want To Be A Christian

    Just How Much Do I Want To Be A Christian

    Mark continues where he left off in his last talk (on the temptations of Jesus – “Give Up Like Jesus “) after he shares some of his thoughts on how to read the Bible in a way that might make you more interested in being a Christian. Then he draws our attention to why it was important that Jesus started by building community with some fishermen. If you listen carefully, you’ll catch when he inserted our theme phrase! 😉 You can view his powerpoint here.

    Intergenerational Connections

    Intergenerational Connections

    At our Second Breakfast potluck, Janell shared about the variety of intergenerational connections she’s had throughout her life, and continues to enjoy today. From growing up in a close knit church community, to moving to St. Stephen, and now working as a piano teacher and fitness coach for older adults, Janell has experienced the value and joy of nurturing relationships across the ages, and helped us all think about this as a way of being rooted together in Love as a community. You can listen below. You can also view her powerpoint here.

    Jesus the Lousy Politican: An Easter Story

    Jesus the Lousy Politican: An Easter Story

    Walter uses a story to make the point of how the political methods of Jesus were not at all on the same page as others – and this remains true to this day. The church that follows Jesus has only one approach to politics: to be communities of compassion, generosity and joy. You can read the story that begins the talk if you check out our SCC Blog.

    Life out of Death

    Life out of Death

    Our Easter Sunday service wove together music, liturgy, lectionary readings, personal “life out of death” stories from three beloved members of our community – Bill, Lorna, and Moriah – and a homily from Rachael. The recording begins with the three “witnesses” and is followed by Rachael’s invitation to sit with the improbability of the resurrection of Jesus, allowing it to be less of a provable certainty and more of a miraculous mystery – that calls to us and shapes our own lived experience of loss and renewal. The lectionary readings can be found here, and the piece that Rachael read to close here.  Bill’s story didn’t record well, so you can read it here instead.

    From Palms to Passion: The Path of Holy Week & Facing our Grief Together

    From Palms to Passion: The Path of Holy Week & Facing our Grief Together

    On Palm Sunday, Jess considers what happens in the space between the Palms of the Triumphal Entry and the Passion of Christ, emphasizing the way Jesus walked toward human suffering and encourages his followers to do the same. Jess invites us to pay attention to the suffering in our own lives, so that we can pay attention to the suffering of others as well. At the end of the service, we listened to a song by the Bengson’s titled, We Don’t Talk About Dying, and allowed ourselves a moment to face our grief together. You can also view her powerpoint here.

    And Yet…The Shadow Side of God

    And Yet…The Shadow Side of God

    A few months after inviting us to “Bring Our Shadows to Church,” Walter asks us to face the shadow side of God in order to prevent us from “calling evil good” (like genocide or threats of eternal torment) while also avoiding a naively optimistic minimizing of evil. We could choose to lament and wrestle with the mystery of evil that’s present in God’s Creation while trusting in the Presence of God’s co-suffering love. You can listen to his talk below, and view his powerpoint here.
