Lots of good stuff going on this week! The Bohemeo’s study will be at St. Luke’s to study the “ghost stories” in the Bible. Register for Interfaith Ministries Dinner Dialogues. Know someone who needs to get their financial house back in order after Harvey? The Bauer School is here to help.
According to Neil Gaiman, the genius of ghost stories is that they surface the unbearable realities and ideas that continually haunt us, and they create space for relatively safe encounter with those ideas that we wish would just stay buried. Join Houston Canterbury as we take a look at some of the spookier passages in scripture on October 31.
This week: conversations about faith with scientists, Common Worship, Coffee on Canterbury at San Jac Central, and The Gathering.
Today we celebrate the Feast of St. Luke the Evangelist, author of a gospel and the Acts of the Apostles, one who seeks to offer us, as lovers of God, the kin of Theophilus to whom he dedicates his volumes, a well-ordered account of acts of a rather disorderly Messiah and an unruly Spirit.
This Week: The Hidden Songs of Scripture at Bohemeo’s, the Feast of St. Luke at UH Common Worship, #WeWelcome on Thursday, Race & the Christian Imagination gathering, and a special guest preacher at The Gathering.
One of the delights of being community together is gathering to celebrate a new beginning in a new place. Following Hurricane Harvey, many still live with an unsettled and unsettling sense of displacement. And yet, wherever we find ourselves, community has the power to welcome us home through love.
This Saturday, Operation Fearless, an exploration of faith and civic engagement continues at San Pablo/St. Paul’s. In this session, you will learn to exercise your prophetic imagination and your voice in the public square on behalf of those who lack hope and voice.
“We seldom notice how each day is a holy place where the eucharist of the ordinary happens, transforming our broken fragments into an eternal continuity that keeps us.” John O’Donohue. Share your songs of affliction and solace, the words that make meaning for you with the Houston Canterbury community.
This week we are starting up a new poetry series at Bohemeo’s on Tuesday night: Voice of our Estrangement, Answer to Affliction.
