I’ve Been Meaning to Ask

Tuesdays at 7 pm by Zoom
In February, we begin a four week series called Ive been meaning to ask…”.
In this series, we have been exploring a series of questions. Some of the best conversations start with good questions—questions we’ve been meaning to ask, questions that keep us curious, and questions that lead us deeper into courage and connection. This worship series is crafted around four guiding questions: “Ive been meaning to ask… Where are you from? . . . Where does it hurt? . . . What do you need? . . . Where do we go from here?” As you can see, these questions aren’t surface level; they invite us to tell our stories, share our pain, care for one another, and dream about a new way forward together.
In order to build connection and trust, we need to listen to each other’s stories and experiences to learn who and what has shaped us. We also need to feel seen and known for who we are. In these first two weeks, we hope to affirm the particularity of our identities while also acknowledging our common ground. Formed from the dust and God’s very breath in the garden of Eden, we have a common home, a shared birthplace, and a collective calling: to sustain and care for all of creation. The story of Jesus calling the disciples provides a helpful charge for the whole series: to “come and see” what the journey holds. In these first two weeks, we wish to address how the question, “Where are you from?” is sometimes coupled with assumptions, judgments, and even microaggressions—all of which can be exhausting and painful to receive. Our hope is to acknowledge, disrupt, and release the assumptions we hold about others.
Join in by Zoom on Tuesday evenings, 7 pm, on February 1, 8, 15 and 22.
