Worship gatherings at The Parish are lively, welcoming, simple, and sacred. Though our worship is different each week, common elements include music, teaching, and engagement with the stories of Scripture which point us to Jesus. At the close of each gathering, we join the rhythm of the global Church through communion and prayer.
Life With God | Day of Pentecost (May 23, 2021)
On the day of Pentecost, we notice and name the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives and community. In this brief homily, Jordan also introduces us to our theme for the season of Pentecost - Life with God.
The Christ Self | Dear False Self (May 16, 2021)
In this final week of Easter, we explore a practice of evangelizing our own false selves by introducing our hearts the good news of Jesus. Because the false self is loved, it can finally let go.
The Christ Self | The Way of the Cross (May 9, 2021)
"Through many small crucifixions, the life of Christ is born in us" (Adele Calhoun). These words set the tone for the next step in our journey into the Christ self identity. The Kingdom of Love is greater than the Kingdom of fear, but entering it involves a dying of life as we have known it. Our passages come from 1 John 4, and we see love's effect on fear.
The Christ Self | Dying & Rising (May 2, 2021, Baptism Sunday)
This morning we celebrate the Baptisms of several members in The Parish community, and we are reminded of the inner journey of the Christ Self rising.
The Christ Self | Confrontation & Awakening (April 25, 2021)
Join us as we continue our series "The Christ Self". As the Kingdom of God parades into a realm governed by the False Self, we experience both awakening and confrontation. This morning's passage is from 1 John 3.
The Christ Self | A Name for Myself (April 18, 2021)
The False Self appears early in the biblical narrative. We'll trace its exponential growth in the human experience from Genesis on, and how the eastward movement of the False Self is invited to return home to God's garden through the resurrection of Christ.
