Last Sunday was both Mother’s Day and Youth Sunday at my church. I gave a short homily (13 min) on the Beauty of the Divine and the living web that connects us all. You can listen to the audio here http://www.westwoodumc.org/messages/youth-sunday-bo-sanders/
This coming weekend I will be speaking at the Table outside Sacramento about updating and innovating both what we say and how we do ‘church’. Church 2.0 is not a gimmick or technique to get more people to come to church – it is a different way of being the church. [here is my first run at the concept]
I want to move from people being spectators at a scripted spectacle – a passive audience at a stage show with everyone facing the same direction – toward an active, integrated, participatory model where folks are contributors in a collaborative enterprise.
Here are the two promotional videos for that event:
Lastly, we just finished up at series of conversations at The Loft LA about the beauty of what is in the Bible. Here is the podcast about parables – one of my favorite topics! http://www.theloftla.org/messages/week-3-parables/
I would love your thoughts and feedback. I will let you know how this weekend at ‘the table’ goes.
