Exploring the Iceberg Model of Culture at 10:00 am
The iceberg model is a way of talking about how unexplored assumptions and values influence action, relationships, and speech. Today, we move closer to home as we look at Shadow Rock's community culture. Why are we doing this work? Because when we are aware of our own culture, we can make sure that culture does not become a source of pain or unwelcome for others.

Coffee Chat and Discussion -
Immediately following the sermon
We're getting more adept at the online tools available to us. Today we'll be using the feature 'Breakout Rooms' to allow for more personalized discussion. If this is your first time with Breakout Rooms, think about them being just like the tables at Coffee Chat - a chance to get to know folks and have a great talk.
Here are this week's questions from Pastor Ken:
The first assumption is that we are the embodiment of the paradox of universality and particularity. We stand on the mountain reaching for the stars, but our feet are planted on the ground. The first question for your discussion is this: Does this metaphor work for you and have you had this experience of living or caught in between?
The second question is this: Do we experience life as a long list of losses and lack gaps? What do you do with this reality? Is most of life a facing of this truth or a denial of this truth?
Final question: Do you resist “planting your flag” into any particular mountain of fear of losing sight of the stars?
