Our missional priorities:
1. We do justice for LGBTQ+ humans.
2. We do kindness for people with mental illness and in emotional distress, and celebrate neurodiversity.
3. We do beauty for our God-Who-Is-Beautiful.
4. We do real relationship, no bullshit, ever.

Litany of Confession (and Communion)

This is part two of “Mansplaining Jesus 3/6” from 3/19. You’ll hear the voices of our Missional Logistics Team, our Care & Feeding Team, and our pastoral staff, describing a situation that feels like a turning point in our church life. We confessed before the church that our welcome had reached a painful limit, and asked our Area Shepherd, Rev. Dick Lord, to pray for us and assure us of God's pardon. Listen with care, as there is a mention of sexual assault in the telling -- not among the people of Galileo Church, but in the story of another who asked for refuge with us.

Mansplaining Jesus: Christological Themes in 1 Corinthians 3/5

With apologies to the vegetarians among us. ❤️ 

With apologies to the vegetarians among us. ❤️ 

1 Corinthians 8, 9, and 10 are about whether to eat meat from the altars of pagan, little-g-gods -- but really they're about how we think about each other, our “siblings for whom Christ died.” Decision-making is never that simple when you think about everyone who's affected by whatever you decide. Please note: this sermon is incomplete without the Litany of Confession that follows in our next recording from the same date.

All Up In Your Business: 5/6

Obviously, adultery is right out. Obviously, the death penalty is right out. What else will we find out if we descend to rock bottom with this woman, caught in flagrante delicate? Rocks... and Jesus.

You know what you find at rock bottom? Lotsa rocks.

All Up In Your Business: 4/6

The movie about the journalist who discovered the women were blowing up the well... And an interview with the film's screenwriter that discusses that incident.

The Samaritan woman who goes to the well alone, at high noon -- she got a serious trigger, or at least a serious pain that she'd rather not discuss. Don't we all?

But Jesus wants to talk about it, for real. Trigger warnings be danged.
