Building on last week's introduction, we dive deeper into the cultivation of a prayer-filled life. This time we're led by special guests Larry & Jody Green from Cloud Walk and Evan Chasteen from the ThinSpace podcast. After a casual conversation on prayer, Larry leads us in an imaginative exercise to Be with Jesus.
This week, we explore Jesus' call to a prayer-filled life, and how the great contemplative traditions within Church guide us in practicing the presence of God. After a short talk, Jennie Wheaton guides us in an extended prayer practice to Be with Jesus.
In this talk, Jordan reminds us of the great feast we are invited to with God. To hold up such a broad, expansive, and inclusive meal we need a big enough table. So we explore how we might "say yes" to all we see in Jesus, which means building a table with legs grounded in all the great Church traditions (contemplative, formational, justice, sacramental, and charismatic). For the guiding image we're using in this series, see here: https://thepari.sh/a-big-table
As we enter a new season of gatherings at The Kalen Center, we begin a series as a way of rooting and re-orienting ourselves in the way of our Rabbi, Jesus. We'll reflect on the way and work Jesus invites The Parish into, and how we might respond to Jesus' invitations from Matthew 11: Come to Me, Walk with Me, Work with Me, Watch How I Do It.
On the day of Pentecost, we notice and name the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives and community. In this brief homily, Jordan also introduces us to our theme for the season of Pentecost - Life with God.
Join us as we continue our series "The Christ Self". As the Kingdom of God parades into a realm governed by the False Self, we experience both awakening and confrontation. This morning's passage is from 1 John 3.
