SPIRITUAL GROWTH DURING CORONAVIRUS
Watch. Talk. Think. Act. “To be reconciled to God is to be sent into the world as God’s reconciling community. This community, the church universal, is entrusted with God’s message of reconciliation and shares God’s labor of healing enmities which separate people from God and from each other.” These words from our denomination’s Confession of 1967, among many others in our confessions and from scripture itself, make clear that laboring to abolish all forms of racial injustice is central to the work of the church. We have much to learn and much work to do.
Our spiritual growth and social witness team leaders have identified a number of films that explore this critically important topic. We invite you to watch the films on your own and then join our zoom sessions to discuss. Keep an eye on the church emails for specific film titles and zoom dates and times, or be in touch with arlene@BurkePresChurch.org.
Summer Godly Play: This summer, we gather for Godly Play each Wednesday morning at 10:00 am. After welcoming one another, we share a story, wonder – out loud or via the chat – and then settle into a brief period of work time. Each session stands on it own, all (and all ages) are welcome, and during this summer season we invite story requests!
In addition, we are making available recordings of the weekly Godly Play stories (same stories but not recordings of the actual zoom sessions) for those who are unable to attend the live sessions. These can be viewed on your own time for a period of three weeks (per Godly Play Foundation copyright guidelines).
For the zoom link or for links to the recorded stories, check the weekly BPC emails, or contact Spiritual Growth Director Arlene Decina, email@example.com.
