Liturgy


Rhythm

Our services have different emphases on various weeks that feature eating together, lectio divina, a homily, and story telling.

Each service begins with a period of silence and an opening prayer, culminates in communion, and concludes with a benediction.

Services may also feature worship through singing to God, prayer for one another (including prayer for healing), prayer for others (prayer for our city and world, those who are marginalized, the global Church etc.), and a check-in (sharing how we are coming to the time and space).


Potluck | Sharing

Due to current COVID-19 dynamics, we do not have our potluck.

We have a meal and hang out together. If you would like to come, bring a food (appetizer, salad, side, main, or dessert) or drink item to share, or just show up and enjoy some hospitality.

Note: Please ensure that what you bring does not contain peanuts or tree nuts.


LECTIO DIVINA | LISTENING

Using lectio divina, we listen to what God is saying to us as someone reads a short Bible passage (from the Lectionary) aloud.


HOMILY | TEACHING

Mostly like a sermon, a homily is where someone shares on a passage from the Bible (from the Lectionary) with a view to painting a bigger, more beautiful portrait of God.


STORY TELLING | KNOWING

We listen to someone share their life story with us, paying specific attention to what touches us and how we experience God through their story. These times allow us to get to know each other more deeply and thereby deepen friendship.


OTHER WEEKS | RESTING and CELEBRATING

On selected weeks, we take a break from meeting and do not have a gathering. Occasionally, we also have special gatherings which are slight departures from our usual rhythm.
