Knowledge & News
Thought provoking topics and series, necessary news and information.
Peter offered a subversive reading of the Christian narrative and tradition, in which a community is gathered around a loss. Rather than an object of desire or faith, he offered the lack of this object as the radical heart of good news. From there, he provided a reading of the last supper as the "lost" supper.
This week we were joined again by guest speaker Peter Rollins. Peter delivered a thought-provoking message centered on the subject of loss. We discussed losing faith, or losing key elements of what used to be a part of our faith, and how we handle this. Finally, we held Eucharist with the idea that it is in itself an act centered around loss, but one which we all participate in as a community and, ultimately, gain.from.

We are a misfit faith community that gathers in DeLand on Sundays at 5pm. Come as you are.
We value highly the metaphor of journey. We’re different people from different places and backgrounds, representing an intergenerational community, and we’ve traveled different paths. So, we agree not to make assumptions about the person across from us, next to us, or in conversation with us. We challenge ourselves to be sensitive, knowing this community includes a diverse group of people from life-long followers of Jesus, to people who are just now open to the idea that God might exist. We strive to avoid offense, ask good questions, articulate and explain our responses. We don’t assume fluency in bible, spirituality, or Church language, because we believe the message of Jesus is not for Christianity, but for humanity. So, we do everything in the spirit of love and grace.
