“T” AND CONVERSATION —- UNDERSTANDING THE TRANSGENDER JOURNEY
OCTOBER 21, 2018 AFTER 9:30 WORSHIP
10:30 Light Refreshments on the Patio
A fun hour of conversing and learning about what it means to be transgender and how it affects our lives, the lives of our families, our friends, and our faith communities. Hear personal stories from a transman and his journey through his Faith, suicidal ideation, and ﬁnding self-love through transformation. We are creating safe spaces to welcome difﬁcult conversations. Please invite friends, neighbors, and relatives to join us.
JORDAN DECKER, presenter
A National/International Speaker and Accidental Activist. Having known the depths of bullying and Suicidal ideation, not feeling safe, and his learning that 57% of trans youth will attempt suicide, threw him into the spotlight and out of the closet once again! We educate and advocate for transgender topics and gender-conforming humans primarily in Faith communities.
Sermon Series on Paul
Some people today do not understand Paul’s letters or are confused when they read just a few verses and his words sound arrogant, exclusive, or angry. However, when one has knowledge of Paul’s contexts his letters remain relevant and inspirational for the church today. Through all the incidents, all the theological debates, and all the personalities that form the context of Paul’s letters, one question arises again and again: Can God do a new thing? Paul’s gospel message proclaims: Yes! God in Jesus Christ brought a new covenant for all the people of the earth. Understanding Paul’s letters in his context is critical for us to grasp Paul’s theology, and find the courage to do new things as the church today.
JAZZ WORSHIP SERVICE
October 28, 2018, 9:30 a.m.
Christ Presbyterian Church in Terra Linda
In the 1940s, the sound of jazz was bebop. In 1959 Miles Davis, Dave Brubeck, Charles Mingus, and Ornette Coleman, broke new ground with four unique and innovative albums. On October 28, 2018, at the 9:30 a.m. Worship Service at Christ Presbyterian Church the Steve Blum Quartet will play selections from each of these artists. The church today needs similar innovative creativity. Inspired by these artists, we will contemplate the innovations God is calling us to in 2018.
