Neighborly Waters - Seattle Mennonite Church Sermons

buzzsprout.com

“You have heard that it was said, Water is a precious resource to tend carefully and preserve. But I say to you, Water is a neighbor. Water is a relative. Water is life.

“You have heard that it was said, God created all of creation and commanded us to be good stewards of this gift. But I say to you, You belong to creation. You are not set apart. You must be re-placed in your watershed, rooted in your place, your wholeness & wellbeing bound up with the wholeness & wellbeing of your bioregion.

“You have heard that it was said, You must live on this land with great care. But I say to you, You will only truly live when you know that you don’t live on any land, but that you live in a place, within a bioregion, woven into a watershed.”

Pastor Megan reflects on how we come to know our waters as our neighbors and, as such, to love them as ourselves. The third Sunday in our Watershed Discipleship worship series “A Place We Love.”

Workshop Registration :: People's Institute Northwest

Please pray for the members of our Spiritual Leadership Team, including a couple of pastors, who are attending this important "Undoing Racism" training yesterday and today.

"The People’s Institute Undoing Racism Workshop is an intensive workshop designed to educate, challenge and empower people to “undo” the racist structures that hinder effective social change. The training is based on the premise that racism has been systematically erected and that it can be “undone” if people understand where it comes from, how it functions and why it is perpetuated."

[02/09/17]   Lord, should rising tyrants tear from our land our freedoms dear,
Should our rulers fail to heed the law that governs every deed;
+
Should the people rise too shy against such leaders vain and sly,
Though we lose the decades’ wins, and struggle to begin again;
+
Should our historic, certain stride be thwarted whilst you seem to hide
As we who knew such steadfast gain, now reacquaint ourselves with pain;
+
Yet to thee my soul should raise grateful vows and solemn praise,
And, when every blessing’s flown, love thee for thyself alone!

~written by SMCer, Vija, sung to Hymnal: A Worship Book 92

SMC songleader Marvin Miller noted the singular poem by Anna L. Barbauld that spans numbers 91-92 in our hymnal as we sang both this past Sunday. He noted that the second half / lament portion of the poem is utterly agrarian in its imagery and challenged us to ponder re-writing to better fit our context. This is the beautifully poignant response from Vija, chair of our Spiritual Leadership Team.

Gloom & Nourishment - Seattle Mennonite Church Sermons

buzzsprout.com

"Our disconnection from our place, from our bioregion, from our watershed, is certainly not the only cause of our gloom; it may not even be primary among the causes of our gloom. But I wonder if it might be a bigger cause than we typically acknowledge? If this disconnect, at a deep spiritual level, deprives and distances us from the shalom wholeness God desires for us and for all peoples and all creation?"

Pastor Megan reflects on where we find hope and nourishment in gloomy times, and how disconnection from our watersheds and bioregions may contribute to that gloom. The first Sunday in our worship series "A Place We Love."

Neighbor sign leads to powerful neighbor connection. Read below for the story of how one of those "No matter where you are from we're glad you're our neighbor" signs - in English, Arabic, and Spanish - actually brought some Seattle neighbors together in a breathtaking way. [Image: Salaam, in Arabic calligraphy, hand-painted by Abdul, neighbor of Lee & Rob Murray.]

Neighbor signs make the news! At the beginning of December, a Seattle resident contacted us through our website to ask if we had any of those Mennonite neighbor signs she'd heard about on NPR. We'd just received our first shipment in the mail and so she came to the church to pick one up. This week she wrote again to draw our attention to one of our signs making the news - from the P-I, taken at the airport immigration action on Saturday. Watch the message spread! (Welcome Your Neighbors)

Anyone recognize the girl holding the sign??
