Jason Miller - When you build an altar to recognize the gift you've received, the next question you might ask is: is this altar calling me to stay here, plant some roots, and resist the temptation to keep moving? Or is it compelling me to keep walking forward, trusting that the God who was good to me here can be good to me anywhere?

Ryan Yazel - In week two of To Build an Altar, we find goodness in the mundane.

What are some ways we can challenge ourselves to recognize the goodness in the simple, unremarkable things around us?

James 1:17; Acts 17:24-29

Jason Miller - In week six of our Everyone an Icon series, we asked again what is the God like whose image we bear. We also celebrated baptisms.

Beth Graybill - In week five of Everyone an Icon, we paused to reflect on the tradition of baptism. We heard stories from a few friends in our community regarding their own baptism experiences, and reflected on how we can identify with the life of Jesus through baptism.

Jason Miller - In week four of Everyone an Icon, we asked where our anxiety about God comes from. We turned to Exodus 20, Matthew 2 and 3, and Ephesians 1 and considered whether Jesus is an exception to the character of God or a revelation of the character of God.

Jason Miller - In week three of our conversation about bearing the image of God, we’re continuing to ask what we know of the God whose image we bear. We consider the implications of a God who is 3-in-1. If God is a community, then we cannot bear the image of God alone.

Jason Miller - This is week 2 in our exploration of one of SBCC's core mantra's - Everyone an Icon. We're asking, what does it mean to bear the image of God? We looked at Genesis 1, Sirach 51, Matthew 11, and Ephesians 2, and considered the creative calling on every human life to get our hands on the raw materials of the world and make something beautiful. This week's episode also features performances from guest artists Eric Marshall (Young Oceans) and John Tibbs, who joined us in our Thursday night gathering.

Jason Miller and Beth Graybill:

One of our SBCC mantras is “Everyone an Icon” - every human being is a bearer of the image of God. Our new series will explore the meaning of this radical claim over the next several weeks. To begin, Jason Miller and Beth Graybill shared a conversation about Jesus and the ways that he calls out the dignity of the people around him, and the limiting beliefs we hold that keep us from realizing our own sacred story.
