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.

    Q: What is creativity?
    A: The relationship between a human being
         and the mysteries of inspiration.
Elizabeth Gilbert’s latest.

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.

KIKI EBSEN IN CONCERT

BENEFIT CONCERT FOR ST. MARTIN’S SCHOOL

Sunday, October 18 — 7pm

TO DAD WITH LOVE: A TRIBUTE TO BUDDY EBSEN

FEATURING SINGER KIKI EBSEN

A veteran singer-songwriter and accomplished musician who’s toured internationally for 20 years, Kiki was inspired to record and release the CD, “Scarecrow Sessions,” in tribute to her father’s vast career. Its debut was in time for Father’s Day. Songs from this album provide fans new insight into Buddy’s talents as a dramatic actor as well as accomplished dancer. Response to “Scarecrow Sessions” was so strong that she and her brother Dustin have created a multimedia showcase of personal stories and beautiful photo memories and magical songs in tribute to one of America’s most beloved true pioneers of the entertainment industry.

Actor Buddy Ebsen was perhaps best known for his television roles in the 1960s and 1970s. His fans, however, may not know as much about the first 30 years of his career, as a dancer on Broadway, and in early films. Were it not for fate, American children would have had 75 years to enjoy him in the role of the Scarecrow in “The Wizard of Oz.” It was the role of a lifetime, but it was also the one that got away.

Free Admission.  An offering to benefit St. Martin’s School will be taken.
