    Not Condemned/ August 13, 2017

    Peter Fitch continues to think about John, chapter 3. In this talk, he continues to speak about an on-going dance of participation with God that he believes is available for all humans. He defines “belief” as “acting in accordance with.” Others spoke up and connected this with the idea of trust. He sees people who follow Jesus’s example of letting go of fear-inspired power and walking in love as people who believe in Jesus, no matter what their words or thoughts about Him might be.

    Invitation to a Journey (August 6, 2017)

    Invitation to a Journey/ August 6, 2017

     

    Peter Fitch speaks once more about the dance between Spirit and flesh. He tries to explain why the concept of being “born again” led to an unhealthy path of seeing some people as less than human. He likes the idea of being “born from above” better as it implies an on-going dance between God and people all over the world. Then he speaks about various maps that people have given to try to describe spiritual growth.

    Bonfire Sunday (July 30, 2017)

    Bonfire Sunday/ July 30, 2017

    Our community helped to host the Bonfire Festival this week. Musicians and artists from many places came together for workshops and performances. Today our time was part church service and part concert. Quite a few of the musicians sang songs that were meaningful to them. Along the way some beautiful thoughts were shared about God and community. Rosie Sperling Funk read this quote from Thomas Merton. Peter Fitch explained about a new initiative that Andrew Smith is offering, a subscription podcast for spiritual songs, many with a post-church flavour.
