Origins Series

Origins is a ten-week series will explore life, the universe, and everything.

Okay, okay – not everything. We won't be looking specifically at quarks and protons and protozoa. We'll stay focused on what does it mean to be human(?!) and what does Jesus have to do with any of this? We'll be looking at the story of the world and the story of the lives, hoping to make a connection between the two.

Everyone is welcome. We will be approaching these questions from a Christian standpoint, but will leave wide room for challenges, exploration, and discussion.

Wednesday 7pm in the hall at Church of Our Lord. 

Coffee, tea, and biscotti provided.

Kaleo: Focus #3

Kaleo is our leadership development process and we're launching with a special focus on, well, er, focuses

This year we're asking our leaders to hone in one of three focuses (the less pretentious synonym to focii). Leaders can choose between Academy (focus on the head), Abbey (focus on the heart), or Apostolate (focus on the hands).

Meal and childcare provided.

If you're not presently on the leadership track but would like some more information about leadership or Kaleo in general, contact either Andy (andy@tablechurch.ca) or Josh (josh@tablechurch.ca).

Evensong

It’s time again for praying-and-singing-at-night-together. ( = “Evensong” :))

As some of you know, I moved from Philadelphia a little over a year ago, and some of my friends there but together a book called Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals. It’s kind of an intro to common prayer and liturgy for a people from a variety of backgrounds, and the morning prayers almost always include an “On this Day in History” story about something significant that happened in the pursuit of peace and justice throughout the centuries. 

This Friday night, I thought we’d follow their liturgy for Friday Evening Prayer, which includes scripture, kneeling, confession, singing, candles, and praying for others.

Like other complines and night offices, it’s described as a simple way to “retire from the day together.” I only ever think of “retirement” in terms of that one-time-finishing-career-moment, and never thought of it as a nightly opportunity - to “fold up” each day before God. That kind of elevates my view of a “normal day,” and also situates it in the longer, more-important “career” for us, which is life-with-God. (Reminds me of Eugene Peterson’s book, Long Obedience in the Same Direction: Discipleship in an Instant Society.)

Whether you’re used to evening liturgy and love it, or whether you’re totally new to it and ambivalent about it, or somewhere in between! – you’re welcome to come and retire from the day, together. Who knows how God will speak, reveal, release or comfort!

The details:

Evensong, this Friday night, November 10th, 8pm-9:30pm @ COOL in the choir area in the sanctuary. BYOD.
