Waiting with Lectio Divina: November–December Series

In the face of the chaos of the holiday season, we long for peace. For three weeks, The Table will slow down and consider our longings for Jesus to bring greater peace and redemption. Using the ancient practice of Lectio Divina, a type of listening prayer and meditation, we will consider the words of the prophet Isaiah. The aim is to slow down and set our eyes on the coming of the Prince of Peace, Jesus.

The Table meets on Wednesdays at Our Saviour's Lutheran Church (1720 Harris Avenue, Bellingham, WA 98225). We will start with a shared meal at 5:30pm. Bring a dish to share if you are able. This is followed by children and adult classes from 6–7pm. The children of The Table participate in Godly Playa curriculum that helps kids explore the Christian faith with story, wonder, and play.

Invite a friend and join us. Everyone is welcome!

The Colossian Experiment: October–November Series

One of the greatest criticisms of the church is hypocrisy. In the Apostle Paul’s letter to the church in Colossae we find a picture of a community living their faith with authenticity. In this 4-week study, we will examine the letter to the Colossians, while setting up a real-life experiment to see if/how we can insert specific practices that might help us to live our faith with greater congruency.

The Table meets on Wednesdays at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church (1720 Harris Ave., B’ham). For those who can make it, we will start with a shared meal at 5:30p. Bring a dish to share if you are able. This is followed by children and adult classes from 6–7p. The children of The Table participate in Godly Playa curriculum that helps kids explore the Christian faith with story, wonder, and play.
