Timberline Old Town

Sunday morning teachings and guest speakers from Timberline Old Town. At Timberline Old Town we gather to remind each other who we are…that we are all created in the image of God and have chosen to accept that, accept God’s love, take care of each other, and participate in God’s kingdom as followers of Jesus Christ.

TEXT

Matthew 16:13-15

John 8:31-32

 

TAKEAWAYS

1.

May my words and actions more and more be congruent with the ruth (heart of Christ and my deepest calling) 

 

2.

Three possible sacrifices of following our deepest calling: Misunderstanding, shame, loneliness

 

3.

Three important questions in pursuing our deepest calling: Is it true? Are my words or actions doing harm as far as I can tell? Are my words and actions motivated by love as best as I can discern?

 

BENEDICTION

May we be undone by the love of Christ and for the sake of those whose voices have been silenced

Aug 12, 2018

While Darren is on sabbatical, we're in a series called Voices - exploring the different voices around us (call them wisdom, if you want) that might act as guides on the pilgrimage to the heart of Christ. 

Each week, the speaker will act as the guide to exploring a different voice of their choosing. The guest speakers invited are some of the voices we want people to hear.  

TEXT

2 Chronicles 5:11-14

Mark 7:31-37

TAKEAWAYS

1.

Yield power and listen to the voice and stories of those who are often silenced

Suggested reading: 

The Power Of The Powerless by Christopher De Vinck

I'm Still Here by Austin Channing Brown

 

2.

Practice a prophetic imagination that is deeply rooted in the world around you.

 

3.

Become curious for the voice of God in the cry of others.

2 Chronicles 5:11-14

Mark 7:31-37

TAKEAWAYS

  • Be mindful this week about when you feel the need to interrupt or interject in a conversation. Ask, "Why?"
  • Change one routine this week.

  • At least three times this week, set a timer for 4’33”.

    Sit in silence, with the word Ephphatha in your mind. See what the Spirit might reveal to you.

  • Consider reading these books:

    Reaching Out

    by Henri Nouwen

     

    Interrupting Silence

    by Walter Brueggemann

     

    Just Mercy

    by Brian Stevenson

 

BENEDICTION

Be Opened by Malcolm Guite

Be opened. Oh if only we might be!

Speak to a heart that’s closed in on itself:

‘Be opened and the truth will set you free’,

Speak to a world imprisoned in its wealth:

‘Be opened! Learn to learn from poverty’,

Speak to a church that closes and excludes,

And makes rejection its own litany:

‘Be opened, opened to the multitudes

For whom I died but whom you have dismissed

Be opened, opened, opened,’ how you sigh

And still we do not hear you. We have missed

Both cry and crisis, we make no reply.

Take us aside, for we are deaf and dumb

Spit on us Lord and touch each tongue-tied tongue.
