Jason Miller – A teaching on the scandal of the particular, and the beauty of finding God in the details of Jesus.

At the end of the teaching, we were led through a practice called Lectio Divina which focuses on scriptural reading, meditation, and prayer. Our time together then concluded with a song led by our worship team, called “Jesus at the Center” by Israel Houghton.

This weekend, instead of a new teaching, we entered into some practices to further reflect on God as Creator. Based off of the challenges we received from Jason in last weeks teaching, we spent some time reflecting on creation and in the practice of creating. If you want to join in with us in these practices, you can use the resources below. And if you want to engage in the creation practices with us, you can find those resource below

Reflection

Music recorded live at Studebaker 112 and spoken word recorded separately. Follow along with the full transcript found at: https://bit.ly/9-18-22-creationliturgy

This week in our gatherings we introduced a new song that is based on the Apostle’s Creed and we entered into a practice called Prayers of the People. We felt it important to pray for the Church at large, individual needs, and remembrance on a day such as September 11th, as well as center ourselves on the faithfulness and love of God through all seasons of life.
Of all the things a creed could say about God, the first thing the Apostles’ Creed says is that God is Father. What does that do in a world with such complicated experiences around gender, patriarchy, parenthood, and faith?
