“What would change if we took seriously the consideration that the world is alive, that we derive our being from a never static, ever-changing field of entanglements?”
~ Bayo Akomolafe
A new story is emerging, and while we cannot pretend to know all the layers, one aspect that seems essential, relates to the worldview of belonging—a way of being human that acts as if we belong to a community larger than our own family, race, class, and culture, and larger even than our own species. The apocalyptic unveiling happening in our world right now makes it difficult even for those who have been sheltered in privilege to look away from the reality that we are all deeply interconnected. Humans, trees, oceans, deer, viruses, bees. God.
This Sunday, in this depth of belonging, we listen from inside of something greater than ourselves, and become the voice of something beyond our understanding. Together, we discover that we are living with-nesses of a world of new possibilities revealing itself before us.
“Do not pray exclusively to the ancestors of the land; make room also for the spirits of the fault line; the new gods that scream through cracks with the first musical notes of worlds to come.”
~ Bayo Akomolafe
Hearing the screams of these new gods through the cracks of crumbling outdated structures, is the heart work of the 21st century Lightworker. Though steeped from birth in the paradigm of modernity, it is ours to lead the way forward, breaking through to a radical new way of perceiving and being that can, at last, meet the complexity of the times in which we live.
Inspired by the work of Bayo Akomolafe, during this 4-week series, “Soul Presence in a Time Between Worlds,” we will embark on the journey of bringing great presence of Soul to the uncertainty that defines these times of great change. Join us for each of these Sunday sessions: Soul Essence, Soul Sanctuary, Soul With-nessing and Soul Sangha.
Within the depths of Love, and within the embrace of community, we can truly hear those first musical notes of worlds to come.
We are very excited to announce the reopening of our in-person services and are looking forward to seeing you now every Sunday @ 10 am PT! The leadership and production teams have been busily creating a service with you in mind that is both spiritually nurturing and inspiring. Afterwards, please join us for live fellowship.
