PINE STREET POST

A Weekly Newsletter from Pine Street Church
A Word from Andrew... Thank You, Ash Wednesday, and Today's Chapel Edition Worship Video on YouTube Premiere (10am MST).
Dear PSC Members and Friends, 

The late great theologian and civil rights leader Howard Thurman famously wrote, "Don't as what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."

There was abundant aliveness at our Annual Meeting last Sunday. Thank you to all who joined us to celebrate the past year and to look ahead to this year with a feeling of joy and hope. We are coming alive through the vital mission and ministry we share together. I am exceedingly grateful for all of you.

Ash Wednesday is coming up on February 17. We will have two video worship opportunities--one at Noon and one at 6pm. This will be a joint service, as we will be joined by our friends from All Souls Church.

I invite you to check out our newly refreshed website (PineStreetChurch.net) with our new messaging and engagement campaign that many of you saw previewed at our Annual Meeting. There will be more content added in the coming days, including a Membership Portal. We celebrate this new-look website along with the increased capacity to connect with newcomers.

Be sure to join us this morning for worship and connection at 10am on our YouTubeChannel. You are welcomed to grab your favorite coffee or tea and hop on earlier to "live chat" with your fellow Pine-heads.

Finally, (say it with me now): Please watch (and share!) today's video worship link and be sure to subscribe to the PSC YouTube channel.

*Note: As always, please be sure to share Hyphenated Life podcast episodes AND this morning's Sunday worship video with your friends and on your social media channels.

Sharing is caring! If you don't wish to share, please like or comment on any social media posts sent out by Hyphenated Life, Pine Street Church, AND our Off Broadway Preschool on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

With heart,
Andrew

UPCOMING EVENTS
Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday (and the start of the season of Lent) is Wednesday, February 17.

Our Lenten theme will be "Again and Again." In Lent, we’re reminded that, again and again, suffering and brokenness find us. We doubt again, we lament again, we mess up again. And again and again, we begin again! You will receive in the mail before Ash Wednesday a Lenten Care Package to help navigate faith formation and worship at-home during this sacred season.

This year, we'll be partnering with our friends at All Souls Church for two worship services premiering on our Pine Street Church Youtube Channel at 12pm &6pm
The Psalms: Yesterday & Today
Tuesdays at 7pm

Dr. Bill Mankin is leading this exciting faith formation group in a study of the Hebrew Psalms, their form, types, use in ancient Judea, and use in public and private worship today. They're studying in detail one or two psalms of several types and then writing a contemporary psalm of the same type.

You will be asked to compose a psalm of your own each week, in the style of the psalms studied in the current session. The psalm may address contemporary concerns or historical concerns such as those of the original psalmists. We will collect all the “home grown” psalms into a booklet for each of the participants.

Meetings will be via zoom on Tuesdays at 7pm

To register or for more information, email Bill Mankin at:

ART BRUNCH
Sundays at 9:30am
Art of the Soul - Henry Ossawa Tanner

Best known for painting Biblical subjects, artist Henry Ossawa Tanner's most shown works are "The Banjo Lesson," and "The Thankful Poor," seen here. That's because Tanner happens to be African-American. But Tanner only painted a few works with African-American subjects, even though he received a great deal of pressure to paint such subjects for the advancement of racial equality in America.

Tanner ultimately fled America for France, due in part because of his personal and painful experience with racism. At the time, Tanner had many admirers in his home country, and was experiencing some success. Yet he still felt he must leave, due to another subtler form of racial pressure. He made his home overseas so that he could be known, not as a great "Negro Artist," but simply as an excellent artist, painting the subjects most dear to him.

In this presentation, we will look at representative works of this American artist, who was profoundly moved by his religious upbringing, though he expressed this experience in non-traditional ways. Being faithful to what was in his soul, Tanner achieved considerable success as an artist, while constantly feeling outside pressures to change his art. After examining his life and work, I will invite you to express your thoughts on this artist's dilemma - should a creative talent remain faithful to what is deep in their soul, or use their talents to advance a noble cause?

See you Sunday! And please share this event with kindred spirits.

From the back cover: "A masterful work, Cynthia Bourgeault invites us to follow Jesus' path of self-emptying love, and she describes wisdom practices that we Christians can use every day to transform our own minds so that we too can see with the eyes of Christ." Jim Marion
