10.6 [CONVERSATION] Everyone an Icon (wk 5) - Stories
Beth Graybill – In week five of Everyone an Icon, we paused to reflect on the tradition of baptism. We heard stories from a few friends in our community regarding their own baptism experiences, and reflected on how we can identify with the life of Jesus through baptism.
Jason Miller – In week four of Everyone an Icon, we asked where our anxiety about God comes from. We turned to Exodus 20, Matthew 2 and 3, and Ephesians 1 and considered whether Jesus is an exception to the character of God or a revelation of the character of God.
The team leads us through a reflection of Psalm 23 using the song Shepherd by John Tibbs.

9.22 [TEACHING] Everyone an Icon (wk 3) - Community
Jason Miller – In week three of our conversation about bearing the image of God, we’re continuing to ask what we know of the God whose image we bear. We consider the implications of a God who is 3-in-1. If God is a community, then we cannot bear the image of God alone.

9.15 [TEACHING] Everyone an Icon (wk 2) - Creativity
Jason Miller – This is week 2 in our exploration of one of SBCC’s core mantra’s – Everyone an Icon. We’re asking, what does it mean to bear the image of God? We looked at Genesis 1, Sirach 51, Matthew 11, and Ephesians 2, and considered the creative calling on every human life to get our hands on the raw materials of the world and make something beautiful.
