    Open Book: A Queer Quandary for Ash Wednesday by Kimberly Knight

    in Spirituality

    Ash Wednesday begins a 40 day journey called Lent.  Lent is a time of prayer, fasting and almsgiving.  It is a time of reflection, forgiveness, change, mercy - the list goes on and on.  Perhaps this year, it can be a time to spend time in deep prayer and contemplation about what it means to live in community with one another.  We hope you will join us with an open heart as we discuss a recent blog post on patheos.com by Kimberly Knight.

    Open Book: "Wearing God" by Lauren Winner (Part 2)

    in Spirituality

    God as bread. God as a laboring woman. God as a dog. Sound heretical? These are all metaphors for God that are used in the Bible! Lauren Winner's stunning book "Wearing God" brings some of these images forward for new consideration. Today, Lori and Alice consider God as a sensory experience: What does God smell like? What smells are most pleasing to God? How does our sense of smell lead us to — and away from — real communion with God? Then, we'll take on the metaphor of God as bread. Is God a marbled rye or chocolate tea bread? Tune in for some lively discussion from your favorite spiritual book club!

    Open Book: "Wearing God" by Lauren Winner

    in Spirituality

    God as bread. God as a laboring woman. God as a dog. Sound heretical? These are all metaphors for God that are used in the Bible! Lauren Winner's stunning book "Wearing God" brings some of these images forward for new consideration. In today's show, Lori and Alice will examine the affect that our image of God has on us and on our broader society. Then, we'll talk about God as clothing, and as the one who clothes us. How can this image change our vision of ourselves? Can it help us feel less shame about our bodies? Can it change how we interact with others? Let's talk about it on your favorite on-the-air book club!

    The Divine Providence of God ( Ps.107:14 ,Eph.3:9-20)

    in The Bible

    The Divine Providence of God( Ps.107:1-14 )


    O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever  Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, 


     help or care from God or heaven divine guidance or care God conceived as the power sustaining and guiding human destiny


    Ephesians 3:9-21 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:


    10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,


    11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:


    12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.


    13 Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.


    14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,


    15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,


    16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;


    17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,


    18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;


    19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.


    20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,


    21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
