Collective Podcast Sermons for threshold faith communities.

Greed is an incredibly difficult subject to address. It is not a certain amount of money, but rather a posture toward money, wealth, and the thing we perceive to be connected to it. Money is essential. It can be a vehicle for goodness and an used as an expression generosity. It also can be an anchor that plunges us into self-destruction, or an ember that sets us ablaze with obsessive consumption. Join us as we explore the inclinations of our hearts toward money, and offer some practical disciplines that can help form us in ways of healthy relationship toward money. Plus there will be some outstanding music!

The desires that motivate and call us into the fullness of life, can also be hooks and anchors by which we are drawn into self destruction. The same embers which glow with warmth and save us from the cold, can quickly burn us to the ground. This week we begin our Lenten journey of introspection and self examination. Rather than looking out, remaining in the abstraction of intellect, philosophy and theology, we'll turn these disciplines inward. We'll use the lenses of vice and virtue to explore our habits and inclinations, and examine our form of life. Are our impulses and their expressions leading us into more vital ways of being, or robbing us of the thriving life that is, deep down, behind our desires?

This week we complete our journey in exploring hospitality and the unconditional, ending with among the most difficult forms of welcome, the welcome of self. More than merely the way we think of ourselves, we'll ask questions about the way we live in response t our own value, the conditions we place on our own acceptance, and the ways we project our limited welcome onto the divine. From how to love ourselves, to the ways the church heals or hurts us, we'll need your voice to round out a robust conversation.
