This week at the Table, Rev. Deborah leads us in a new conversation about being the resurrected church.
I wrote in my newsletter article about what it means to be resurrected. It’s kind of hard to describe. It’s not simply being brought back from death to life – it’s more about transformation. Becoming something greater than the sum of the parts, in the words of one of my mentors.
Church really should be like that, most of the time. Individual people, each with their own perspectives, understandings, ideas, passions, and hangups, gather together and do more than they can do separate. Church is where you should get a taste of people power with that dash of divine power.
But it’s not always perfect. We are still people. We still can do the wrong thing. We can still get all twisted up and in the way of what God desires to do in and through us.
The Table is not a community that is concerned with perfection. We are not a worshipping community that wants everyone to fall in line. We want you to be you, whoever that is, whatever you face in your life. And together, we gather at God’s table to taste that resurrection life that is offered to us. Filled up with that good stuff, we use our hands and feet to change the world and find our own lives nourished into transformation.
In other words, come and walk with us as we explore what it might mean to be a resurrected church this week.
