September 10

Getting Good at Justice

Progressive Christians have a vocation for justice.  Amos 5:21-27 explores the call of the prophet Amos, not about personal righteousness but about social righteousness.  We are all in this together!  Paul in Romans 13:8-14 talks about the need to love our neighbors.  Jesus calls us to a love ethic for justice. 

September 17

The Practice of Compassion

Progressive Christians have compassion for others and for the world (and for each other).  See Isaiah 54:4-10.  Progressive Christians are not content with being right, they seek to act with love. 

September 24

Living with Hope!

Progressive Christians live with hope.  Paul, who knew a thing or two about defeat, writes about living with hope (2 Corinthians 4:8-18). 

Opportunities

In response to expressions of interest, we  are exploring the creation of two new groups:


A Faith in Action will explore how our faith compels us to address current social issues.  We will seek to be non-partisan but involved, with an emphasis on action.  The next meeting will be Sunday, September 17 at 7 p.m.


A Spiritual Explorers  are a new small group that will explore different practices for enhancing the spiritual life.  We will meet monthly to share experiences and learn the next month’s activities, but otherwise practice on our own.  In September we will explore the uses of the Bible as a devotional tool.  In October the uses of poetry and music.  In November  we will follow a method taught by Ignatius of Loyola on how to be more grateful in life.  And somewhere in this we will have a one day retreat!  The next meeting will be at noon on September 10. Open to all!
