This week Karina starts off the service with a meditation on our advent theme of Journeying. Dean & Janine light the advent candle and Sylvia reads an Honest Advent chapter before Sarah shares her thoughts on what Journeying means for us at the Bridge.
We begin our advent journey this week as Eden shares thoughts on the first theme of "Waiting", The Klassens share an advent reading, Dean reads a meditation and then Scott Erickson, author of Honest Advent shares on Vulnerability. Check with your local or online bookseller to get a copy of Scott's book. Order prints and other amazing swag created by Scott at www.scottericksonartshop.com. Artwork for this series by Scott!
The last in our Beatitudes series! Karina shares a Lectio Divina/ Imaginative Prayer meditation on Psalm 23:4 and Sarah concludes the series on the Beatitudes along with an exercise that helps us write our own Psalm to help us through times of difficulty. (Pandemics have lots of difficulties, you'll want to listen to the whole thing - you'll be glad you did!)
This week's beatitude is from Matthew 5:8 - Blessed are the pure in heart for they will see God. On that theme, Sarah leads us in a meditation and Eden reflects on how becoming pure in heart is a lot like weeding a garden.

Eden Jersak led this week's meditation and Brad Jersak hosted a conversation on this week's beatitude: Blessed are the merciful, with our Muslim friends Safi and Eman Kaskas. This one is definitely worth the listen!
