What is Process Theology and Why should I care?

Come find out Dec. 4, Tuesday evening at 6 pm. A light supper will be served as we have conversation with Dr. Bruce Epperly, Disciples pastor, chaplain, university professor.

Theology is something all of us do; think about our life in light of what we believe about God. Each of us brings particular perspectives and life experiences that impact what we believe about God. Process Theology is a way of thinking about God in light of the world in which we currently live. The Center for Process Studies at Claremont School of Theology is the world epicenter for Process Theology. It is in our back yard and a great resource for us.

Tom Reed’s reflections on Process Theology provide a helpful introduction.

“It provides the only satisfactory answer to the question of, “If God is love, why is there evil and suffering in the world, and why doesn’t God do something about it?” It asserts that, “We may live out of and yet beyond our own past. We may know that a new gift will be offered to us at the beginning of each moment, and that whatever we create in that moment will be saved everlastingly.” In other words, no matter how powerless and insignificant we may feel, everything we do matters and contributes to God’s being in the world. In this way, it provides a basis for hope. And, incidentally, it is consistent with science regarding how things work in the physical world.”

Dr. Epperly will lead us through conversation about the incarnation: the coming of Jesus into the world as the presence of God. Advent is a good time to consider what we mean when we say and sing, “God made flesh”. It is also a good time to consider what that means for how we live our faith in the world.

 Call the church office to make a reservation. Thanks!

Creating More Joy in the Season of Joy

Would you like to experience more joy in your life? In the gospel of John, these words are attributed to Jesus: “I have said these things to you so that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete.” Often, as we approach Christmas, many people are overwhelmed and under “joyed”. If you would like to increase your experience of joy during this season, I invite you to join me for a four session class: Creating More Joy.

The sessions will be held on Mondays, 6:30-7:30 pm, Nov. 26th, Dec. 3, 10
and 17.  Email or call the church office to sign up. If you want to participate but are not available Monday evening contact the church office and let us know. The course is being led by pastor Julie Roberts-Fronk.

Women’s Retreat – Saturday, Sept. 22

Women of the congregation and friends gather for a day of learning, conversation and spiritual practices. The retreat starts with a brief study of the book of Ruth and conversation around the themes that emerge from the story: friendship, fear, loss, redemption. We share lunch together and then women have choices of different practices. The labyrinth will be set up. Janice Brown is leading a session on Compassionate Listening. Julie Roberts-Fronk will be providing Reiki. Prayer stations will be available for those who want guided meditation and an area is also set aside for those who desire time to simply have conversations with other women, time to catch up or make a new friend.

The retreat begins as 9:45 and ends at 3:30. If you would like to attend, call the church office at (909) 622-1144.

Labyrinth Walk Feb. 26th Sunday 6:30-8 pm

The Labyrinth is an ancient practice adopted by Christians in the Middle Ages as a pilgrimage walk. A large canvas is set out in our Fellowship Hall modeled after the labyrinth in the Cathedral at Chartres. Each person walks the circular path in a different manner. One person may meditate on words of scripture; another may pray a particular prayer. The physical activity of walking can be a way to quiet the mind enough to enter more fully in the presence of God.

The walk takes anywhere from 20-40 minutes. Please wear socks as shoes and barefeet are hard on the canvas. Quiet music is played during the period the labyrinth is open.

Reiki Share Feb. 18th 9:30-11:30 am

Reiki promotes stress reduction and relaxation that promotes physical healing. Reiki helps restore the body’s natural state of balance: people experience deep calm, reduction of pain and for some, spiritual wellness. It has been shown that stress is a significant contributor to illness. One of the most powerful aspects of Reiki is its ability to reduce stress.

A “Share Event” is a great way to get introduced to Reiki and also for people with Reiki experience to get a tune up. We begin with a brief introduction followed by a Healing Prayer.  The rest of the time is spent in the practice of Reiki, giving and receiving for those who are interested. Wear comfortable clothes. Reiki is given through gentle touch or simply holding the hands over the body.

Come to the office entrance. We meet in the Conference Room. Questions? Call Julie Roberts-Fronk at the church, 622-1144.
