Collective Podcast Sermons for threshold faith communities.

Mike Furlong was being shaped by Collective influences before Collective existed; And Mike was shaping Collective before there was Collective to be shaped. The lives of this person and this congregation have been inextricably tangled, woven together for more than a decade. Join us this week as celebrate Mike's time with us, and encourage him as he moves on. 

This week we celebrate Earth Day, which gave us a unique opportunity to pause this past Sunday to consider the relationship between our faith and the earth, as well as to celebrate the goodness of God's good world. In addition to exciting new music, moving meditations and a Eucharistic connection with the soil, we had the treat of learning from life-long environmentalist and spiritual practitioner, Jora Young. She  shared a bit of her story, her life practice and her unique blend of eco-spirituality. 

What does it mean to live in the wake of death? This is a different way of looking at resurrection, but it asks an important question about how we interact with the idea of life in the wake of various deaths, whether our own or another. This week, our own Dave Joseph brought together the themes of life and death, of resurrection and desert wilderness. Come support the many voices who form our communal voice. Check it out here. The liturgy is below so you can follow along.  And why not subscribe to the channel while you're at it?! 

For the third year, we descended upon the Cafe with the full force of a celebration worthy of the kind of life that defies death. Our pattern has become a DeLand tradition. Our brief service included a short reflection and words of hope, as well as music from our musical guest. This year, our live music featured Uproot Hootenanny, a phenomenal, high-energy, blue-grass, Irish folk band. Our meal included Free-Wil BBQ, Trilogy Coffee, vegetarian options and more! A DeLand event and an Easter you never want to miss. Eat, drink and be merry!
