Beth Graybill - In the weeks after Easter, we're finding ourselves in stories of Jesus from the Gospels. This week, Beth Graybill takes us into Luke 24. At the end of Beth's teaching, she asks these questions for our Open Floor:

How are you making meaning in the midst of your grief?
What practices, old or new, do you find comforting and healing in this season?
How has Jesus made himself real to you in the midst of your grief right now?

If you'd like to share with us, please call 574-387-2151 and share a response to one of those questions. Then, on Thursday, April 23, we'll include some of your messages in our Open Floor episode.

This Easter, we're celebrating resurrection in our homes, socially distant but together in spirit as our world faces COVID-19. We've released a special Easter 2020 film, shot in Studebaker 112, that you can view anytime here: https://vimeo.com/406564098. This podcast episode features the teaching from that film. He is risen!

While our gatherings are suspended due to COVID-19, we’re bringing one of our most cherished practices to the podcast: the open floor.

Jason Miller - On Palm Sunday, Jesus wept for the city that didn't know what makes for peace. And in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we're finding out that the world we've built is broken in more ways than we realized. 

This week, we'll release another [OPEN FLOOR] episode on Thursday, but since it's Holy Week, it'll be a special Maundy Thursday Open Floor. We'd like you to be one of our Maundy Thursday preachers by calling 574-387-2151 and sharing  one clear picture of forgiveness or love that you have seen in your life.

While our gatherings are suspended due to COVID-19, we’re bringing one of our most cherished practices to the podcast: the open floor. This episode features responses to our March 29 teaching on holiness, picking up the theme “set apart” and asking ourselves “for what purpose?” and “to what extent?” The prompts offered for response were: 

Consider how you can create some beauty or goodness for the world in this unsettled time, let us know what you did and how it went.

Return to some practices this week: prayer, meditation, almsgiving, the examen, or another favorite. Let us know how that goes.

Ryan Yazel - Matthew 8, Matthew 5:13-16 

As we continue our lenten series on holiness, we pick up the theme "set apart" and begin to ask ourselves "for what purpose?" and "to what extent?" The church has taken many approaches through the centuries, regarding how distant or engaged it has been with the world around it, with some approaches looking more like the example of Jesus than others.

At the end of this week's episode (and future episodes while our gatherings are suspended), you'll hear some questions for response. Call 574-387-2151 and leave a voicemail response. Then, on Thursday, April 2, we'll release an [OPEN FLOOR] episode featuring your responses. Here are those questions: 

Consider how you can create some beauty or goodness for the world in this unsettled time, let us know what you did and how it went.

Return to some practices this week: prayer, meditation, almsgiving, the examen, or another favorite. Let us know how that goes.

While our gatherings are suspended due to COVID-19, we're bringing one of our most cherished practices to the podcast: the open floor. This episode features responses to our March 22nd teaching on holiness as a communal project, along with a general check-in on how people are coping with everything surrounding the pandemic. 

March 21, 2020  

Jason Miller - In this unexpected moment of social distancing and quarantines, we're considering the power of holiness as a communal project. It's not just a private, personal thing. It's an "us" thing. In that spirit, we're also bringing one of our favorite features from our in-person gatherings to the podcast -- the open floor. At the end of this week's episode (and future episodes while our gatherings are suspended), you'll hear some questions for response. Call 574-387-2151 and leave a voicemail response. Then, on Thursday, Mar 26, we'll release an [OPEN FLOOR] episode featuring your responses. 

How are you doing with all the COVID-19 disruptions? What's been especially difficult with everything going on? What's helping you adapt to this unexpected season? How are you coping?

Where in your relationships have you seen holiness as a communal project? Where have you known the presence of God in the space between people?

Who in your life has helped you grow in holiness, wholeness, or being present to the presence of God? How have they done that?

Jason Miller - Our in person gatherings are suspended in response to the Coronavirus outbreak, but we're continuing our Lent teaching series on holiness. You might have heard the word holy defined as being "set apart", but that raises all sorts of questions. Set apart from what? For what? And what could it possibly mean when God is described as set apart, if God also fills everything everywhere?
