Collective Podcast Sermons for threshold faith communities.

This week we continue our Advent exploration of the unconditional. From last week's look at unconditional gifts, we look this week at unconditional acts of mercy. We'll enter into the tension of all of the good done in the name of religion, and the propensity religion has to get in its own way, drawing acts of mercy into systems of mercenary economic rewards. Don't miss Mic The Prophet sitting in for the house band, and a shorter service followed immediately by the Christmas party!

This week week we begin our season of intention and preparation, readying ourselves for the celebration of all that Christmas means. We'll begin this season, so often eclipsed by and consumed with the culture of gifts, by exploring the nature of gift giving. At a deeper level, beyond questions of spending and simplicity, we'll open ourselves to the unresolvable paradox of gift, and find in this tension, one of the ways in which God is born in the world.
