And the weather might be, too! Please join us Saturday, 6 PM, for our next Open Hearts Gathering. If you need directions, just let me know. We’ll have Chili for dinner, so make your best batch!
This Sunday is the celebration of The Baptism of the Lord, so our scripture readings reflect this theme. We’ll also begin with a meditation from Bono’s wonderful speech at the 2006 National Prayer Breakfast, published in book form as “On The Move”. So, in that spirit, the One Campaign will be our offering this Saturday. Go to the website yourself, before or after we meet, and make a prayer with your wallet, however you feel so called.
We’ll be exploring more about our own spiritual identities and journeys, and will start this Saturday with an introduction to the Myers-Briggs Personality typing. Inspired by Carl Jung’s philosophy and hammered out by two of the Great Ones, Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter, Isabel Briggs Myers. There’s a basic, free test you can take at, at which they ask you to register at the end. If you don’t wanna do that, just print up everything off the first page and bring it with you. Becky and I have gotten pretty proficient over the years using MBTI, my hope is that we can guide you all through it. But I’m just an arrogant INTJ, so we’ll see!
If we can make the time, we’ll also start the first session of the “Saving Jesus” series from Living the Questions. Jesus needs saving these days, from fundamentalist and uber-conservative Christians that think they know him best! We’ll find out exactly how they DON’T….and that we might know him a little better! So if we can make time, we’ll start using this Saturday, but if not we’ll try to get to it on January 29 when we meet again.
If you need anything else from me before Saturday, just let me know. Thanks, I look forward to seeing you all then!
