  Worship Excerpt

Being in our initial stage of living into community together, Agape has services twice a month.  Join us for us for the Agape Service: Living in Liminal Times at 4:30pm Sunday, March 7 via ZoomOur hope with services, as with common life at Agape, is that you bring your entire self- mind, heart, body, and spirit!

Kids are welcome at Agape dinner church & services!  Our services are intentionally intergenerationally friendly for kids.  Several adults are present during services to supervise preschool and elementary school youth in doing art and other faith formation projects.  Children are welcome to participate as much as they desire or are able to in the services themselves.  Each service has a "Children's Moment" for kids :)

Agape Service: Living in Liminal Times

Liminal comes from the Latin word for "threshold."  Says Richard Rohr,
“All transformation takes place in this liminal space.
We have to allow ourselves to be drawn out of ‘business as usual’
and remain patiently on the ‘threshold’ (limen, in Latin)
where we are betwixt and between the familiar and the completely unknown.
The threshold is God’s waiting room."
How can we live more deeply into our callings of love and service during transitional, liminal times, rather than get stuck in the natural human response of resistance?

The story of Palm Sunday is essentially a story of “calling.”  What would compel Jesus to go into Jerusalem, knowing the fate that awaited him?
