Blessing the World with Heart

Join us for a fourteen week small group ministry program designed uniquely for SFUC by Rev. Samaya Oakley. Following a format in Heart to Heart, we’ll work through Rebecca Ann Parker’s book, Blessing the World: What Can Save Us Now. This is a book for the times in our lives when it feels like things are falling apart – when war, genocide, and injustice lead us to the brink of despair.

Topics covered include:

  • Finding our way through the rubble;
  • Finding our way after the apocalypse;
  • Finding our way not somewhere else, but here;
  • Finding our way – you shall be like a watered garden;
  • Cornerstones – lifting up the human power to create heaven on earth
  • Holy War and Nonviolent Resistance
  • What they dreamed is ours to do
  • Something far more deeply than interfused
  • On this shining night
  • Family values
  • What shall we do with all this beauty?
  • Soul music
  • Love first
  • Choose to bless the world.

Please note that the weekly evening programming is changing from Tuesday night to Thursday night. We’ll start at 7:00 pm and end at 9:00 pm on the following Thursdays. January 12, 26 February 2, 9, 16, 23 March 30 April 6, 13, 20, 27 May 4. There will be a small fee to cover the cost of copies for reflection questions.
