  • Making Jesus Offensive Again (September 3, 2017)

    Making Jesus Offensive Again/ Septenber 3, 2017

    Walter Thiessen explores another of the ways that we might be tempted to water things down in order to appeal more to culture or be less embarrassed by some pockets of Christianity. Today he shares about the ways that Jesus was great at offending just about everyone. Don’t settle for less. (you can listen to the start of the service/music here)

    Devotion (August 27, 2017)

    Devotion/ August 27, 2017

    Walter Thiessen wonders if devotion – the intersection of love/dedication/commitment – is a piece sometimes missing from contemporary spirituality. He conducts an experiment to see how “God” (in this case Colin) needs to move around in order to help a blindfolded Joel to walk the path toward Goodness and Compassion. Are we devoted to the One who calls us toward Goodness/Compassion and do we feed that devotion through regular practices?

    Music as Meditation: Deep Listening (August 20, 2017)

    Music as Meditation:
    Deep Listening/ August 20, 2017

    This was a training service (we do something different and more hands-on each month on the third Sunday). Today Rick Coates shared information about Deep Listening and led us through a couple of small meditation exercises. The first one was with relative silence (aside from a noisy fan!) and the second one was with a piece of electronic music that he has composed.

    Here is the music from the first part of the service.
