Mike Goldsworthy

In a world with so much relational strife, we are spending time talking about how to be in relationship with those that we disagree with or, in some cases, how to know when it’s time to bring that relationship to an end. This weekend, we explore an instance of this happening in the early church when two leaders chose two different approaches to this question, and explore a framework for how we might think about the level of access and vulnerability we give to the different people in our lives. You can find the visual for this framework here.

Mike Goldsworthy is a speaker, resourcer, and guide with a passion for connecting like-minded churches and leaders. He also has a podcast, space for faith: re-imaginging the church for our current moment, and started the Post-Evangelical Collective. He is also a long time friend of SBCC and currently serves on our board.

In a world with so much relational strife, we are spending time talking about how to be in relationship with those that we disagree with or, in some cases, how to know when it’s time to bring that relationship to an end. This weekend we heard from Brit Barron as she challenged us in the importance of remembering where we have each been in our journeys and how to sit with ourselves, and others, in the nuance.

Brit Barron is the co-pastor of New Abbey in Los Angeles as well as a speaker, teacher, and author. Her upcoming book Do You Still Talk to Grandma? invites readers to imagine the world beyond cancel culture and is an invitation to nuance. Both in our gatherings this weekend, and in her everyday life, Brit offers a path to holding onto our deepest convictions without losing relationships with the people we love.

We’re spending a few weeks recapturing the power of an ancient Christian calling, exploring hospitality as the act that creates the conditions for someone else’s experience of belonging. In our final week, we’re learning to see hospitality as an act of faithful resistance against whole systems that war against the safety and belonging of people.

In week 2 we’re exploring the human need for belonging and how each of us has opportunity and responsibility to invite those around us to belong. We’re unpacking a few hospitality best practices to help us move from theory to living it out.

Mark is an author, leadership coach, guest experience expert, and the Director of Strategic Initiatives at A Rosie Place for Children. When he’s not doing any of those things, he’s most likely with his wife, Laura, his daughter, Liv, and his grandkid, Arlo. If you’ve been around SBCC in person, you’ll most likely recognize him as the head of our greeters team.

Conversation
June 18, 2024

Matt Graybill and Jason Miller

As we’ve watched and learned more about the experience of Israelis and Palestinians in the Holy Land, (including our church’s own pilgrimage trip there two years ago), we’ve developed relationships with people there whose suffering we lament, and whose peacemaking work inspires us. Because of those relationships, we were recently asked to show up again in an act of solidarity, and Matt Graybill, our executive pastor, went on our behalf. Matt sat down with Jason, our lead pastor, to share his experience and help us all continue to pay attention to what’s happening, and to do our part in the work of peace.

To learn more from our partners at The Telos Group, check out their podcast channel.

We’re spending a few weeks recapturing the power of an ancient Christian calling, exploring hospitality as the act that creates the conditions for someone else’s experience of belonging. It’s a calling on us as individuals and as a community, and it’s one that can make a difference in the world right now.
