  • Beauty (July 21, 2019)


    Beauty / July 21, 2019

    On a day when Aldea Poirier was reading in Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert Pirsig that the author hated it when people asked “what is beauty?”, Peter Fitch dedicated a Sunday talk to that very question. People shared stories and ideas and he read from C.S. Lewis and from Ian Morgan Cron to talk about the role that beauty plays in calling us to remembrance of God in the world. The talk began with a song by Andrew Smith called “Holes in the Night Sky” and it included a video with the song “This is Me” from the movie, “The Greatest Showman.”  (sorry the recording started a bit late but you can listen to the song with the link below)

    July Second Breakfast / July 14, 2019


    Peter Fitch talked about difficult conversations and asked people to remember conversations they had had with people they cared about that had not gone well. Together we explored ideas that might have helped. ** No recording this week, table discussions.

    Treasured Stories (July 7, 2019)


    Treasured Stories / July 7, 2019


    Peter Fitch shares the way he’s been thinking about God lately with a Bible story and some images (see the power point). He sees rivers within their banks as a good picture of natural law and the structure necessary for people to thrive and for the universe to exist. But he sees something else, too. At times, rivers overflow. He likens this to the special moments in life when something strange or mystical happens, and he wonders if God is as eager to find willing participants in the overflow moments as we are to experience them. After sharing these ideas, he asks if anyone would like to tell one of their own stories. Several people do and they are all amazing.
