A Weekly Newsletter from Pine Street Church
A Word from Andrew... Join us for Live Zoom Worship Service Today at 10am... The Power of Courage
Dear Pine Street Church Members and Friends,

Courage has been defined as speaking our minds while telling the truth of our hearts. Courage empowers us to be most fully who we are meant to be. It also enables us to be truth-tellers to the powers that be. 

John the Baptizer and Jesus were such twin truth-tellers to the ruler Herod. Today, we learn more from St. Mark from this flashback scene about the murder of John the Baptist and its wisdom about what makes our lives and the world different when courage rather than cowardice drives behaviors.

We’ve seen anger and rage wreak unspeakable harm and tragedy when emotions are so out of control that it leads to hatred and violence and shootings in houses of worship and schools and on our streets. And we need courage as individuals and as a church to speak up and speak out when we see how paranoia and lies and fear makes it easier to hate than liberate.

Power can bring out the worst in people, as it did in Herod. And power can also bring out the best in people when there are enough good people of power to do what is right.and what happens when paranoia and fear and

Join us today at 10am via Zoom as we learn more about what this greatest of all virtues can teach us about using the power of love rather than the love of power to transform ourselves and the world.

With heart,
Andrew

Now What?! - Art and Our Next Chapter, pt. 3

Now that more and more activities and opportunities are opening up to us, what is our next move? Over the next 6 months? The next year? The next 5 years? What do we want to experience, achieve, acquire? What impact do we want to make? What relationships do we want to cultivate or mend?

Inspired by some of the amazing art I’ve recently seen, I would like to present ideas and resources that may help us turn the next page in our lives, gain clarity about opportunities, and expand our legacy for our friends, family, and community.

This Sunday, I will look at artists who freed themselves from their past to continually evolve creatively, and even vocationally. Too often, we limit ourselves by what we have been. We believe we must rely on skill sets acquired over decades of working. We think we must base our next idea or project on what we already know. But one of the most exhilarating aspects of living is learning, and hence experiencing, something new.

Please join me Sunday morning as we continue our live virtual meetings, always ending with your chance to share your thoughts and ideas.

Hyphenated Life Podcast

Be sure to check out a very special episode of the Hyphenated Life Season 2 Finale.

We're beyond excited and humbled to announce that, Titan of Celtic Christianity, John Philip Newell joined us from Edinburgh, Scotland to talk about his upcoming book, Sacred Earth, Sacred Soul.

JP, as he invited us to call him, is one of the leading Celtic teachers and authors of spirituality in the world. He calls the modern world to reawaken to the sacredness of the earth and every human being.

This is what he said about his book that was released this past Tuesday, July 6: “We know things in the core of our being that we have not necessarily been taught, and some of this deep knowing may actually be at odds with what our society or religion has tried to teach us. This book is about reawakening to what we know in the depths of our being, that the earth is sacred and that this sacredness is at the heart of every human being and life-form. To awaken again to this deep knowing is to be transformed in the ways we choose to live and relate and act.”

One Great Hour of Sharing

When you read about disasters, do you sometimes wonder how you can help?

American Baptist Churches USA partners with several other denominations in promoting the One Great Hour of Sharing Offering. This is one of four seasonal mission offerings In which we invite you to participate. Already this year, One Great Hour of Sharing funds have been allocated to emergency relief efforts in states hit by especially severe cold weather. Last year grants were made for emergency Mid- West Flood Relief and Wildfire Relief, and there is ongoing support in response to the devastating effects of COVID on families and communities.

This year’s theme is : Let Love Flow. Your generous donations to One Great Hour of Sharing permit the inclusive love of Pine Street Church to flow whenever and wherever it is most needed.

Thank you for helping us to reach (and exceed) our goal of $1,000.

Pine Street Church will receive the One Great Hour of Sharing offering throughout the month of July. You may send a check to Pine Street Church with OGHS in the memo line, or find the drop down tab on the giving page of our website.
