Season of Lent: The Desert of Compassion | Starts March 1
Jesus experienced forty days of testing and transformation in the rugged Judean desert. Whether disease, social injustice, personal loss, or other challenges have led you to the spiritual desert, it may seem doubtful that any good can come from hardship. Yet it was the arid wilderness of physical deprivation and soul-deep testing that prepared Jesus to live a life of devotion, courage, and merciful service to others. The Desert of Compassion provides daily Lenten sustenance inspired by sacred Scripture, present-day teachings, and personal experience. Join us via ZOOM or In-Person as we explore this Lenten journey together.

Queering the Bible | July 16 & 23
Sundays | July 16 & 23 | 11:45am-1:30pm
The Bible is a central part of the faith experience for many Christians. The Bible has also been used a harmful tool to reinforce harmful practices that exclude and condemn historically marginalized populations including women, people of color, and LQBTQ+ community. Come and learn more about “clobber” passages and how proof texting furthers the harm. During our time we will engage the whole of scripture in the context of the religious, political, and historical context of the when texts were written and how they have been understood by other Christians throughout the ages and around the world; and examine even (especially!) how it speaks to our current context.
