Gravity - Psalm 126
Clean
December 08, 2019 10:40 AM PST

This year for Advent we will be walking through the Psalms of Ascent. This week, Heather walks us through Psalm 126. The Psalms of Ascent were prayers the people of Israel would say and sing, together, as they marched upwards towards the temple in Jerusalem, seeking God and asking him to meet them; to be present. Like the Psalms of Ascent, Advent is about both our need and our preparation for God’s presence. But while the Psalms of Ascent were prayed in ascent, in the people’s slow climb upwards towards the temple and the presence of God, Advent, on the other hand, turns our attempts at ascent upside down. We don’t climb to him, he descends to us. Like gravity, God’s presence is experienced in the decent, in his downward movement towards us and in our reception of his gift: himself.

Practicing the Way - Self-Control

This week, Jonny continues our series: Practicing the Way. The book of Mark ends by posing a question; how do we respond to the mysterious victory of Jesus? Do we go and tell or freeze in fear? In this series, we will be exploring the fruit of the Spirit, not simply as values or virtues but as a way of participating, keeping in step with, the Spirit's work in us and the world. Each fruit will be partnered with a passage and a historic Church practice. These practices are not absolutist, but they are traditional ways the people of Jesus have embodied their belief together (aka Self-Control).
