Seekers Church Endorses Boston Declaration

Seekers Church endorses the Boston Declaration, a prophetic appeal to Christians of the United States. It was initially signed by 300 theologians and religious leaders who were in attendance at the 2017 meeting of the American Academy of Relgion/Society of Biblical Literature, and has subsequently been signed by over 1000 more throughout the US. The Declaration begins:
As followers of Jesus, the Jewish prophet for justice whose life reminds us to, “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Mark 12:31) we hear the cries of women and men speaking out about sexual abuse at the hands of leaders in power and we are outraged.

Tuesday evenings 6:45 p.m.–9:00 p.m.
February 4–March 10, 2020

The Universal Christ

Led by Kolya Braun-Greiner & Glenn Clark

Kolya Braun-Greiner and Glenn Clark invite you to join them in exploring Richard Rohr’s book The Universal Christ. Father Rohr introduces a concept of “Christ” as a worldview in which matter and Spirit are not separate—where Christ is a name for the transcendent within everything in the universe. Rohr says that “the proof that you are a Christian is that you can see Christ everywhere else.” The class will explore key chapters and themes through small and large group discussions seeking to cultivate an experiential awareness of the Christ Mystery that “rewires you on the physical, neurological, and cellular levels.” All class members should obtain the book prior to the start of the class.…

Carroll Cafe — Friday, January 10th, 2020

Victoria Vox

VICTORIA VOX is a passionate, award-winning songwriter and performer. In 2003 she took up the ukulele as her main accompaniment and her acoustic style shifted to chanson tinged with jazz, which has settled in nicely with her songwriting flair. She loves to make an audience laugh and cry with genuine, and genuinely quirky, songs. Vox performs mostly as a one-woman band, incorporating a loop pedal and bass effect on her ukulele, while taking her own solos on mouth-trumpet and echoing the tones of trumpet genius Chet Baker with her own, pure voice.

Doors open at 7:00 PM.

Tasty treats available in the kitchen!
