If you missed the beautiful weather, incredible time together and Palm Sunday under the palm trees, you can catch up here (though it won't be the same). Enjoy the YouTube Live-Cast or the Podcast to keep up with what's going on. And to get ready for next Sunday, make sure you've got your Easter Tickets.
Have you ever wondered why religion can so often feel scripted or performative, as if people are just playing roles and fulfilling obligations? What might it look like to challenge religion to overcome itself with the intent that is evidenced by the rules of the system? Put simply, can the spirit of the law transcend the letter of the law? This week we explored the relationship between these systems and the rules of law, vs the radical prejudice of love. We'll get at the tension between the desire for a system to tell us exactly what to do, prescribing us our roles, and the freedom by which we are moved beyond the systems, caught up in a love that transcends the ruling structures.
As always, don't just tune in and listen in, join in. We talked about Palm Sunday and the political and systemic ramifications of the extreme prejudice of love. It calls us always beyond the minimum requirements, expected and acceptable outcomes. What are your thoughts? Comment below.
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.
