TAIZE SERVICE

This worship service, named after a town in France, started in 1940, when a man known as Brother Roger founded a small community there, born out of a vision to create a space for people to find God in the midst of brokenness. Taizé music is contemplative in nature, consisting of a simple one or two line refrain that is repeated multiple times, to help people focus and contemplate on a single aspect of God. for an extended period of time.

PALM SUNDAY

SUNDAY, 20 MARCH — 8 & 10AM

An ancient celebration of the Church, Palm Sunday commemorates the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover. The gospels record the arrival of Jesus riding into the city on a donkey, while the crowds spread their cloaks and palm branches on the street shouting “Hosanna to the Son of David” and “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord” to honor him as their long-awaited Messiah and King.

WORLD VIEW

What’s a World View? Everybody has one. It's a basic way of looking at life — a way of interpreting people and events that pervades a person so thoroughly that it becomes a concept of reality: what is good, what is important, what is sacred, what is real. Here in LA, we have all kinds: from Materialism to Nihilism, Postmodernism to Deism — even unto Christianity! This class explores how to recognize world views, including your own, so that you can participate in the world of ideas in a respectful and honorable way.

  • Four Sundays: April 10 — May 1
  • 11:45—1:30  Led by Eric Jacobson
  • Light lunch (pizza and salad) provided.

BOOK GROUP

After her conversion from Orthodox Judaism to Christianity, Lauren Winner found that her life was indelibly marked by the rich traditions and spiritual practices of Judaism. She set out to discover how she could incorporate some of these practices into her new faith. Winner presents eleven Jewish spiritual practices that can transform the way Christians view the world and God. Whether discussing attentive eating, marking the days while grieving, the community that supports a marriage, candle-lighting, or the differences between the Jewish Sabbath and a Sunday spent at the Mudhouse, her favorite coffee shop, Winner writes with appealing honesty and rare insight.
