Touching Down

By Talks

       June 11

For the last two weeks, Peter Fitch has been speaking about the beginning of the first chapter of John’s Gospel. Since last week’s message didn’t record properly, he began this one with a short recap of what he said last week. Then he takes it further by discussing ideas about the phrase: “the Word became flesh.” He thinks of Word and Flesh together as an unlikely but necessary meeting place. He illustrates some of what he is talking about by making reference to Mr. Rogers, the popular icon of children’s television. Here is a link to the Intro and Outro music from his show.

Encountering God in Nature

By Talks

       May 21

Walter Thiessen continued the series (usually 3rd Sundays of the month) on practical training by sending everyone out into the woods for a walk with a few invitations for how to approach that time. (Those who were willing to give up their break made it out to the Elm St. Nature Park, five minutes away.) Then we regathered for Psalm 104 and some reflections on what the time outside made possible.

Walter Thiessen shares a primer on some of the main biblical principles on economics as a foundation for a main point that the main invitation is to let go – to avoid “possessing” stuff so that our stuff doesn’t possess us.
