    Do for Others/ October 15, 2017

    Joy Benson Green speaks about inclusive Christianity.  Perhaps it is important to not just learn to accept those who are different, but to value the gifts that ‘the other’ can bring to community.  Tune in as Joy shares a sacred moment between herself and a Muslim lady who led her back to Jesus.

    Here is a link to the complete (if you want it all!)service today. Happy 25th birthday SCV!

    Love your Enemies (October 8, 2017)

    Love your Enemies/ October 8, 2017

    Peter Fitch drew on Scripture, James Fowler, Martin Buber, Thomas Merton, and a song by the Dave Matthews band in this talk. He wanted to show videos from Social Good Now but our internet crashed. The talk includes elements from different sources to give ideas and practical help in learning how to love people that think differently than we do. Finally, it ends with some thoughts about how God breaks down barriers between Himself and all the people in the world.

    Link to videos that we didn’t get to use! Why Facts Don’t Convince People (and what you can do about it) and Why Debates Turn into Arguments (and how to fix it)

    Light (October 1, 2017)

    Light/ October 1, 2017

    We planted SCV on October 4, 1992, so this Sunday was our 25th anniversary. We are going to celebrate this over the next few weeks, but today was full of special elements. Brad Jersak gave the teaching and he opened the way for people to share about some of the incredible things that have gone on this week. Some people had participated in a symposium for Indigenous leaders and leaders from various Christian denominations. Others had been involved in concerns related to a white-supremacist group that had been hoping to have a protest in St. Stephen over the weekend. Through it all, the theme that kept rising to the surface was that of light.

    The entire service is here in the recording, beginning with the worship set by Lindsay McKay for about 25 minutes, then poems by Jessica Williams, music by Joel Mason and a children’s story by Brad Jersak for the next 30 minutes or so, then Brad’s talk and sharing for the remainder. All rich!
