December 24, 2023

Jason Miller, Mariah Keener, Zach Gillis, and SBCC Band

For the past few weeks, we’ve held the paradox of waiting and waking up: naming the deep, unfulfilled longings that we don’t have the power to satisfy for ourselves, and recognizing our power to act. This year, the fourth Sunday of Advent occurs on Christmas Eve. So in this special episode of the podcast, we’re sharing with you in real time the same songs, prayers, reflections, and teachings that will accompany our gatherings in South Bend today. In order to more fully participate in this experience, you may want to have an unlit candle nearby as you listen.

In this third week of series on gratitude, we bring the two weeks of teaching into practice. In this gathering, instead of hearing a teaching, we spent some time in three movements — Notice/Capture, Reflect, and Express — in an effort to practice gratitude individually and collectively.

If you’re a long distance community member, or a local one who wasn’t able to join us, we hope that you jump in to these practices with us. Our time will culminate with the practice of Eucharist so make sure to have some form of bread or cracker and wine or juice with you.

There’s a tragedy in the story of Jesus’ crucifixion. It’s found in the life and death of Judas, but the tragedy we’re talking about may not be what you think. What happens to our hearts when we retreat into hopelessness, and how might the resurrection of Jesus actually lead us back to hope?

If you’d like to join us in the practice of Eucharist, make sure to have some form of cracker or bread and some form of wine or juice.
