This Thursday with a free lunch at noon we will hold an important community organizing meeting to get updates on all the projects underway in our area and how to support them and our neighbors. Here at The Welcome Table, 5920 N. Owasso Ave. From fire dept to local schools to upcoming events at the county park to the Heritage Day lunch in September to getting updates from county and state officials about the needs of our area and several other ongoing blight to beauty areas here come and connect. See our coming events below for more information.
Also we are selling special missional t-shirts here for the Unitarian Universalist Christian Fellowship: Love The Hell Out Of This World, God Is Love, and from a slogan from some of the early supporters of universal salvation we have Death and Glory tshirts with that motto, a skull, and the off centered cross on it. You can see all three and how to order from us by going to
Here is a link to recent talks and sermons I have given about various aspects of our work here:
http://www.progressivechurchplanting.blogspot.com/2014/07/the-spirituality-of-missional-messiness.html The Spirituality of Missional Messiness, how to stay centered and hopeful in places of despair.
http://progressivechurchplanting.blogspot.com/2014/06/what-world-and-church-needs-now.html?m=1 The missional call to move beyond our own concerns of institutional survival; why church is changing.
http://missionalprogressives.blogspot.com/2014/07/the-liberal-missional-church.html?m=1 The look at why progressives need to become missional, and the missional church needs progressives.
The notes on the workshop I led along with three other ministers who have been here to our ministry on the northside during the General Assembly of the UUA in Providence, RI this summer.
Coming Events, including our upcoming worship gatherings:
Looking ahead: Special Turley and NorthSide Heritage Day Lunch at Noon at The Wecome Table Center on Sat. Sept. 20 following a tour and talk on the area past, present, and future that will begin at the Center at 9 am.
And finally this is still just a brief report of this summer's work here. We have projects small and large cooking in the community so stay tuned, or better yet, come and see. And please share. There are still many people right around us, in the Tulsa area, and across the nation who are still finding out about this amazing work done by people who are just getting to know one another, by people who are just getting out of prison and being trusted again, by people with illness and sickness of many kinds, and yet all moving forward and beginning again in love.
Blessings, thanks for all you all have done with us, and more coming soon.
