For our final week in Romans, we take time to reflect on some of the themes we’ve been exploring since the Fall. We are reminded that sin and death is at work in the world around us and within us, but that there is something even more powerful at work in the world: liberation. And in a world where relationships are fracturing and fraying, the power of this gospel is that we have been reconciled to God and each other and that we are called into community and belonging with one another, in spite of the differences that might keep us apart.

We explore these themes through the practices of singing, reading, personal reflection, open floor, and Eucharist with excerpts from Romans. We would love for you to join us in these practices, so feel free to grab materials that help you in your personal practice. If you want to join us for Eucharist, make sure to have some form of cracker or bread and some form of juice or wine.

For the songs and readings from today, please scroll down.

The events of Holy Week plunge us into questions about the power of evil and the foolishness of beauty, but the resurrection of Jesus gives us a revolutionary response.

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.

Ways to Get Connected

  • Support the ongoing work of SBCC by giving to our general fund. South Bend City Church is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization. All donations are tax-deductible.
  • Join us next week as we offer an update on The Tribune Project.
