Life Cycles: More Than Remembering

May 30, 2017

LIFE CYCLES: MORE THAN REMEMBERING - Happy Memorial Day! This day is a time to remember those who died in active military service. As a nation we don’t do so well at it. We mostly use it as a 3-day weekend before summer kicks in. Birth, life, death. We have a lot of growing to do in all three parts of this progression, but death is the toughest for us. Today we celebrate the new lives of Elijah & Amelia, and gather around the table of life that connects us. We will look into what more than remembering there is around what we lose. They are more a part of the same thing than you might imagine.

Here's the message outline on our Sunday paper. Find other resources like discussion guides at www.jacobs-well.net/leftovers. Also watch for our regular "Leftovers" podcasts where we talk through other ideas and parts of the message that ended up on the cutting room floor.

Life Cycles: Now It’s Your Turn

May 21, 2017

NOW IT’S YOUR TURN - Last week we explored the role of giving birth and letting go of what we created. This week we’ll explore what happens when you are the one released - when you discover it’s your turn to navigate life. This isn’t just a kid-become-adult thing, but the perpetual life cycle of being called to step up to the plate, take the baton, fill the shoes. Erin McGillivray, who has done her own “My turn now” discoveries and walked 100’s of Peace Corps Volunteers into their turns as changemakers, joined Greg in leading this conversation we all need

Life Cycles: Giving Birth & Letting Go

May 15, 2017

Happy Mother’s Day! This is one of those complicated days celebrating what is most wonderful, and for some, most painful about life. But we share, at least, that we all have mothers. We also all share the rhythm of giving birth and letting go; another source of joy and pain. Today Jacob’s Well-ers, Erin Tripolino, mother & birth doula, and Justin Ley, father & entrepreneur, joined Greg in talking about this key life process and paradox.

Square 1 - Back To Square 1 With Stuff

May 7, 2017

Back to Square 1 with stuff. Here’s a complicated question: What role do possessions play in your life? Here’s another: What role should possessions play in your life? Maybe the answers are so hard because they’re the wrong questions. Maybe this is a dead end in our lives that we need to work our way backwards from. Back at square 1 we can discover better questions. That won’t be easy either, but together we can take a look. Thanks for being part of the wrestling match with us
