  • Anger and Forgiveness (January 19, 2020)


    Anger and Forgiveness / January 19, 2020

    Vic Thiessen looks to Jesus’s anger on the day he cursed the fig tree and cleansed the temple (offering three different readings) for clues on dealing with the anger that is so prevalent in the world today (starting with our own). To exemplify this learning, Vic draws on what some have called the angriest film ever made: Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017).

    Pray It Forward (January 5, 2020)


    Pray It Forward / January 5, 2020

    Peter Fitch wrestles with the meaning and practice of prayer. Is it something we do for ourselves or does it help to change the world? He draws upon a Victorian poet, several Medieval saints, a Buddhist master, a couple of Jewish thinkers, and several portions of Scripture as he tries to make room for past experiences in the thinking that makes the most sense to him today. He finds himself longing for a synthesis where prayer as both “attention” and “intention” meet.

    Going Home (December 29, 2019)


    Going Home / December 29, 2019

    Peter Fitch shares ideas about Jesus as well as ideas from Jesus in this talk on the meaning of His life and challenge. What does it mean for us to go “home.” What was He asking us to do? Drawing on this song, “The Rebel Jesus”, by Jackson Browne, and upon writings by Marcus Borg and Thich Nhat Hanh, Jesus is portrayed as a social revolutionary in the stream of the Hebrew prophets, and also as something more. He is able to work in participation with the Holy Spirit to bring healing, and after His death the early church experienced the Spirit in a very rich way. This gave the inspiration and courage to build a new community where everyone was welcome, everyone had a place, everyone was equal. We finished the time by listening to “Nina Cried Power” by Hozier and Mavis Staples.
