The 6 Feature Sessions
SESSION 1: De/Constructing Jesus & the Lenten Journey What does it mean to take up the Lenten journey when Jesus may come with more baggage than blessings and occasions bigger questions than confidence? As we kick off this class we want to get honest about the baggage and the questions Jesus brings and explore what Lent looks like when they aren't silenced or erased.
SESSION 2: The Consequences of C.S. Lewis' Worst Idea In this session we will explore the why 'Lord, Liar, or Lunatic' is neither Biblical, historical, good theology, or even helpful for framing the call of discipleship.
SESSION 3: From Executed Prophet to Cosmic Christ The history of the church is full of people and communities attempting to testify to their encounter with God in Christ. By surveying the diversity of voices we can find allies and inspiration as we wrestle the question Jesus asked, "who do you say I am?"
SESSION 4: Freeing Jesus from Christendom Capture There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all Jesus and yet many of us have left (or been pushed) out of the church because we couldn't in good conscience stay in the JC-box we were handed. In this session we will explore just what to do with Jesus on the other side of the religion industrial complex.
SESSION 5: Jesus Christ the same Yesterday, Today, and For Ever? Many of us click the 'it's complicated' button when it comes to our relationship with Jesus. While there was one Jesus in history, we end up meeting many more along our way - each with its own character and style. In this session we will reckon with the many-sided prism of Jesus we have encountered and what it could mean to embrace the multitude of Jesuses woven in our story.
SESSION 6: De/constructed Jesus & the Journey of Holy Week For this last week, we will explore the movement of Holy Week and the invitation it gives to meet Jesus and encounter the Christ again. Too often this story is retold to silence our questions and rebuff our doubts, but it is so much more and we want to unpack it together.
Here you will find 6 story videos exploring the many facets of CALLING from 6 diverse voices.
This is CALLING as it is meant to be explored, through the stories of our lives. The story videos are followed by either a prayer or a devotion and questions for engaging the story through this aspect of God’s callings to us.
