Collective Podcast Sermons for threshold faith communities.

This week we begin a three week exploration surrounding the theme of children. We often think of children as hard drives which download data, and call this learning; Or sponges, which simply soak things up. What if, instead of viewing children as data receptacles, we looked at children as the ones from who we have so much to learn. What if we could not only recall, but relive our childhood postures of genuine curiosity, wonder, joy, and trust? Join us as we look to children to guide our formation.

Food is amazing, delicious, and life giving. Gluttony is neither easy, nor fun to unravel. But, it's Lent, and we're committed to examining ourselves, our relationships to and behaviors surrounding even our good desires, like hunger. Join us as we look honestly at the complicated way we relate to food, and the way food relates to our internal complexities. We'll also work through the ways gluttony is thought to show up in the Christian tradition. Inspiring music, reflection, meditation, Eucharist, and more. Come as you are. All are welcome.

This week we explore a lesser told story in the Christmas narrative, and make a connection between welcoming the stranger, and welcoming the new year. When we encounter the unknown, we must chose how to interact. when these interactions become reactions, we risk compromising hospitality and justice. Join us to engage and discuss.

We have a special treat this week! Our friend and partner in justice work, Rajni Shankar-Brown, will join us for some engagement and education surrounding the issues of hunger, encouraging us with simple ways to help, and challenging us to self-examine, especially as we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving. Rajni will be sharing a sung selection from her sacred tradition, on this topic, reminding us that hunger is a human issue that transcends religious divides. We'll consider the story of Jesus feeding the multitudes, and ask some pointed questions about what this story does to us, rather than what we would rather it do for us.
