Funding Beloved Spaces

Notre Dame burned this week. It struck a cord for millions around the world and we are taking the opportunity to talk about what it means to be a steward for such a place. Who’s responsibility is it to maintain and how do you even begin to do that for a place that monumental? Grab a cup of coffee or tea and join us to find out our thoughts…

Religious Kitsch

Thank you, once again to Lent Madness for providing our topic for the week! They are at the third level of the saint bracket where they have already given you background information (Round 1) and quotes and writings (Round 2), so in Round 3 they have a little fun with the remaining 8. Is there a line to draw between good clean religious kitsch and offensive religious kitsch? Grab a cup of coffee or tea and join us to learn more!

Lamb of God

The phrase Lamb of God is everywhere in our actual Lutheran service AND shows up all the time in songs not to mention the actual Gospels. That said, for many the phrase can be problematic. This week we sit down to take a closer look at it much to Pastor Amanda’s chagrin…

One of the Lent Madness match ups this year included Nicodemus and much to Pastor Amanda’s chagrin, we have not covered him yet! So this week, we remedy the situation and ponder the role of the man who not only shows up at night but is at the center of John 3:16 of sports stadium fame.

I Am

Ah, the Gospel of John…. I am the bread, I am the way the truth and the light, I am the good shepherd….It always leads me to start singing “Come Together” by the Beatles in my head. Curious why? Grab a cup of coffee or tea and join us to find out.

Patience

“I want an oompa loompa and I want it NOW!” These days it’s not just the snooty kids in Charlie And The Chocolate Factory who are impatient- we all are guilty to one degree or another. Curious how to turn the tide? Grab a cup of coffee or tea and join us to learn more….

Ruth

Yup, an entire book of the bible named after a woman! Even if you don’t know her name - or that of her mother-in-law who almost overshadows her, you probably have heard her famous line. Curious? Grab a cup of coffee or tea and join us to learn more…
