Our shadow self makes us all into hypocrites on some level. We are all in one kind of a closet or another and are even encouraged by society to play our roles. Until grace is fully triumphant we are all hypocrites of sorts. –Richard Rohr
Micah 3:5-12
Matthew 23:1-12


October 25, 2020

October 18, 2020
Dr. Scott Starbuck
The Reign of God is not about churchiness at all. It has everything to do with everything. In fact, as we listen to Jesus’ images and examples, it appears that it is the world of house and field and job and marriage where we are converted to right relationship. The secular has become the place where we encounter the True Sacred . –Richard Rohr
Isaiah 45:1-7
Matthew 22:15-22


October 11, 2020
Dr. Scott Starbuck
Focus: God is sustaining us in ways we cannot and do not need to understand…we will discover within ourselves, just when everything seems to be lost, that we are being unexplainably sustained by the presence of God that will never lose us. –Richard Rohr
Psalm 23
Philippians 9:1-9


October 4, 2020 - World Communion Sunday
Dr. Scott Starbuck
Focus:  The dualistic mind, upon which most of us were taught to rely, is simply incapable of the task of creating unity. It automatically divides reality into binary opposites and does most of its thinking inside this limited frame. It dares to call this choosing of sides “thinking” because that is all it knows how to do. “Really good” thinking then becomes devising a strong argument for our side’s superiority versus another country, race, group, political party, or religion. Unitive consciousness—the awareness that we are all one in Love—is the hope and prophetic call of World Communion Sunday!  (adapted from Richard Rohr)
Exodus 20:1-4, 7-9, 12-20
Matthew 21:33-46
