REGENERATE: Scripture Studies in Pursuit of Jesus

This study is designed for challenging yet rewarding mutual discovery – perhaps re-discovery – of the Bible in a setting where we take a “beginner’s mind” approach to the continuing relevance of its words, stories, and themes. This is an excellent place to dabble or go as deep as you wish in a group committed to openness and curiosity. We’ll discuss its history, teachings, and meaning from cover to cover. At the center and throughout is an ongoing look at…

The inspiration of Henri JM Nouwen (pronounced “Now-in”) will be the focus of a 3-book series throughout 2023. The late Nouwen’s spirituality resonates even more today than ever for its ability to invite healing through God’s unfailing love wherever division and fragmentation are encountered. For more about Nouwen and his growing relevance more than 25 years after his death, please visit the following website: The Wounded Healer: Book & Discussion “What does it mean to be a minister in our contemporary…

Blue Christmas

Sometimes, “Merry Christmas” and “Happy New Year” don’t express the reality of life.  In fact, there are times when “merry” and “happy” seem impossible to even imagine.  We have a tradition at Liminal Church of taking time to recognize that, amidst the feasting and present unwrapping, there are those whose hearts are heavy.  Blue Christmas is a time when we can pause, and offer a safe space to process those harder things.  It is a time when we can come…
