This tale is true, and mine. It tells
How the sea took me, swept me back
And forth in sorrow and fear and pain,
Showed me suffering in a hundred ships,
In a thousand ports, and in me…
That’s the beginning of an ancient poem called The Seafarer, which is the tale of one man’s journey to God. It does not deny pain, or suffering, or mistakes; neither joy, nor pleasure, nor adventure. It’s a poem about life and discovery and the shape faith brings to a life.
Ancient Christians called their faith the Way—a path in and through the world toward fulfillment in God. They told their stories in letters, theologies, graffiti, and in deeds long remembered in their community. This is an invitation for you to join in that ancient practice of discovery and inquiry.
Join us for the first part of Wayfarers, four Sundays in the fall at 7pm:
There will be cookies, stories, and if needed, childcare.
If you want to learn more, you can join us for the other parts of Wayfarers, Exploration during Advent (late-November & December) and Intense Preparation during Lent (mid-February & March).
