Man Up Gathering with Chaz Howard

7:00-8:30pm Oct 22
Zoom

REGISTER

Chaz will lead us through a look at the many Old Testament stories on crossing borders, particularly those in the book of Ruth.  While many of the stories refer to physical border crossings, we'll be examining the lessons for us as we engage with others in crossing emotional, relational, and political boundaries with a curious, Christ-like love.  This talk will also serve as a preview for the Nov. retreat.

In Pursuit of Rhythm: Exploring Life-Giving Order, Patterns, and Practices

4 Thursdays Oct 29 - Nov 19
Zoom Virtual Meeting

In Chris Hall’s “Learning Resilience” talks earlier this fall, he mentioned “3 Rs” that help us build resilience: remembrance, reorientation, and rhythm. As a follow up to his presentations, John and Nina Whitnah will host a zoom short course entitled “In Pursuit of Rhythm: Exploring Life-Giving Order, Patterns, and Practices.”

Solitude and Loneliness

As we think about what it means to live into 'Deep calls to Deep', it's worth thinking about one of the key spiritual disciplines - solitude. If we don't make any time to be still with God, we can't possibly be in a position to know the experience of the Spirit's presence - underneath all the tumult of the world. We won't hear God's deep call out to our deep.

Deep Calls to Deep

There's a fascinating phrase in the middle of Psalm 42. 'Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me'. It's a psalm expressing longing for God in the context of being cut off from the public worship of the temple and the anxiety of political unrest. In many ways it's a psalm for our times.
