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.

PRAYER

Occupy Our Calendars by Walter Brueggemann

Our times are in your hands:

But we count our times for us;

we count our days and fill them with us;

we count our weeks and fill them with our busyness;

we count our years and fill them with our fears.

And then caught up short with your claim,

Our times are in your hands!

Take our times, times of love and times of weariness,

Take them all, bless them and break them,

give them to us again,

slow paced and eager,

fixed in your readiness for neighbour.

Occupy our calendars,

Flood us with itsy-bitsy, daily kairoi,

in the name of your fleshed kairos.  Amen

Advent Prayer:

In our dark nights, we cry to you
In our bright days, we forget what we longed for

May our cries echo
May our longing be immediate

In our sharp minds, we pray for your coming
In our wavering hearts, we can't decide if the road is open or closed

May you clear the decks
May we raise the gates on our tollbooths.

Here we gather as hopeful witnesses to revolutionary birth.
Going from here we encounter oppression in mind and action.

Disrupt us to new life
Advent us to your longing for your children.

Let not sorrow be ruler.
Clear the way for Joy as the undexpected King.

Amen.

Scripture: 

Psalm 23

 

Advent Prayer:

In our dark nights, we cry to you
In our bright days, we forget what we longed for

May our cries echo
May our longing be immediate

In our sharp minds, we pray for your coming
In our wavering hearts, we can't decide if the road is open or closed

May you clear the decks
May we raise the gates on our tollbooths.

Here we gather as hopeful witnesses to revolutionary birth.
Going from here we encounter oppression in mind and action.

Disrupt us to new life
Advent us to your longing for your children.

Let not sorrow be ruler.
Clear the way for Joy as the undexpected King.

Amen.

Dec 6, 2015

Scripture: 

Psalm 44

 

Advent Prayer:

In our dark nights, we cry to you
In our bright days, we forget what we longed for

In our sharp minds, we pray for your coming
In our wavering hearts, we can't decide if the road is open or closed

May you clear the decks
May we raise the gates on our tollbooths.

Here we gather as hopeful witnesses to revolutionary birth.
Going from here we encounter oppression in mind and action.

Disrupt us to new life
Advent us to your longing for your children.

Let not sorrow be ruler.
Clear the way for Joy as the undexpected King.

Amen.

Advent Benediction:

A Future Not Our Own by Archbishop Oscar Romero

It helps, now and then, to step back
and take the long view.
The kingdom is not only beyond our efforts,
it is beyond our vision.

We accomplish in our lifetime only a tiny fraction of
the magnificent enterprise that is God’s work.
Nothing we do is complete,
which is another way of saying
that the kingdom always lies beyond us.

No statement says all that could be said.
No prayer fully expresses our faith.
No confession brings perfection.
No pastoral visit brings wholeness.
No program accomplishes the church’s mission.
No set of goals and objectives includes everything.

This is what we are about:
We plant seeds that one day will grow.
We water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promise.
We lay foundations that will need further development.
We provide yeast that produces effects beyond our capabilities.

We cannot do everything
and there is a sense of liberation in realizing that.
This enables us to do something,
and to do it very well.
It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way,
an opportunity for God’s grace to enter and do the rest.

We may never see the end results,
but that is the difference between the master builder and the worker.
We are workers, not master builders,
ministers, not messiahs.
We are prophets of a future not our own.

Passage: 

Psalm 107

 

Comtemplation:

Are we willing to clear the decks of our expectations of the ways Jesus will encounter us?

Are we willing to let the creator be creative in the ways he will manifest his Holy refrain?

Nov 15, 2015

 

Reflection:

Have I ever "known" something about God and changed my mind later?

Is there a place right now where I feel like Gamaliel - in the middle?

Nov 8, 2015

Passage: 

Acts 4:32 - 5:11

Reflection:

 

Where am I seeing great fear & why?

Where am I seeing great grace?

Nov 1, 2015

Passage: 

Acts 3:1-10

Reflection:

Would it surprise you if God did a miracle right in front of you?

Who or what do I need to start looking at?
