Dear Folks -
I know that this week is a busy time for most of you with shopping, visiting, traveling and all the other matters related to the Christmas season. If you are in the Houston area I would remind you that there will be Christmas Eve services at St. Paul's at noon, 2 (Spanish service), 4, 6 and 8. The services are an hour earlier than usual this year since Christmas falls on Sunday.
There will be no gathering of Ordinary Life on Christmas Day and only one service of worship at 11:05.
On New Year's Day there will be a social hour on the first floor of the Jones Building during the time Ordinary Life usually meets.
Ordinary Life will resume our regular schedule on January 8, 2012.
The title I gave this week's talk in Ordinary Life is
In the talk I differentiate between "salvation theology" and "transformational theology." There is no place to get to in our spiritual practice because our spiritual work is, thankfully and frustratingly, an ongoing process.
The full text I used to speak from is below.
