The 2020 Herencia Webinars - Part 2

Friends, tomorrow at 6:00 p.m., I am given the honor to lead a conversation on Identifying and Navigating Enduring Vulnerabilities. Our experiences during these moments with family, parishioners, community residents, and so many in our world of ministry can be quite challenging. Perhaps you wonder if your present call is under siege. As servants, we seek to be strong and supportive without taking into consideration our questions and vulnerabilities. We will gather in small groups to claim our fears, share our joys, and experience the depth of both our humanity and spirituality. For part of this webinar, we will break into small groups. Therefore, registration is necessary! Please register by tomorrow at 3pm by visiting https://www.ptsem.edu/events/herencia-webinars-oct-27. I look forward to seeing you!

Colleges cancel diversity programs in response to Trump order

On September 22, #45 signed an executive order misinterpreting the Declaration of Independence and prohibiting the work of diversity, equity, and inclusive excellence. Another indication of this leadership leading our country to censorship and anarchy.

Some institutions have begun to cancel diversity, equity and inclusion programs in response to a Trump order. Critics say the order is censorship.

Princeton Theological Seminary

Last weekend, the Princeton Seminary community held a socially distanced outdoor art gallery featuring art by students, their children, and even their pets. "God said all creation (and creating) was good," Daniel Heath, student life resident, explains. "An omniscient and omnipresent God spoke planets and plants, stars and seas, animals and almonds into existence long ago. Each member of the trio, God our guardian, Jesus our savior, and spirit our helper, fully participated in the dance of creation waltzing over the glaciers and soaring through the canyons. In God's own appearance and likeness, they sculpted children with their hands, squishing mud, rolling clay, fashioning soil, and patting sand — all kinds, all colors, all shapes, and abilities." Take a look at some of their artwork!

Community Is the Secret to Successfully Enrolling Students in the Fall

"As we prepare for next year’s incoming class and returning students, it may now be imperative for universities to create virtual communities in addition to virtual classes -- to make sure that the most interesting and important things continue to happen in the in-between times and spaces on our campuses."

Re-creating the space in between classes is necessary to keep university communities alive.

What If? - Isaiah 43

What would our communities of faith be like if we celebrated our differences? What if our communities had both respectful separation for different groups and respectful coming together? What if we decided that our multicultural, communities were of such importance that we learned each other’s music; not just the tunes, but the history, and the feelings of singing today and yesterday . . . not only music of the church but music that comes from people’s movements? What if we decided that our diverse communities were of such importance that we learned each other’s stories, not beginning with questions, but with active listening . . . hearing what has been written in history, how it has been written, and what has not been written and asking why . . . feeling each other’s stories with our bodies and souls?

What if we decided that our multicultural communities were of such importance that we learned each other’s languages, maybe in formal coursework or maybe asking what is the word for this or that, what are usual greetings or expressions of politeness? What if we became more attentive to cultural differences of expressions and ways of being? What if we decided that our relationships with those considered as “the other” were of such importance that we learned about each others’ images of God? What if we opened ourselves to images of God as an old Black man or woman, or an old Asian man or woman, or a very young Native American person, or a campesino from Mexico? What if we stretched ourselves and learned each other’s interpretations of Bible stories? What if the dominant group in our communities really welcomed all to the table and embraced the sharing of power and control?

Our communities, like the communities of the early church, are called over and over again to faithfulness. We say in our creed that we are one people united in Christ. We proclaim one God, Creator, and Sustainer of us all. We write policies and invoke doctrines that keep an inclusive vision before us. Formally, we declare we are “in union with Christ and that we form one body and, as parts of that body, we belong to each other.” Such is our formal theology. But what about our day-to-day theology, our practice? How do we actually live our daily lives---both as a community of faith and as individuals that represent a myriad of cultural values, theological perspectives, socio-economic-political-religious beliefs? If we are honest, our practice, our day-to-day theology, does not always reflect the formal theological pronouncements we publicly profess.

God is doing a new thing right here at Princeton Theological Seminary. Not so much in the buildings that occupy 64 Mercer Street, but in the hearts and lives of this community and in the partnerships with the surrounding communities. Yet, the only thing that will keep us from seeing it is fear. Hear then the word of the Lord, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you. I have called you by name, you are mine .. and I love you.” Human families and communities are designed to create stability for their members. Churches are no different—perhaps sometimes they are much worse. Even in the midst of suffering, so often we humans cling to the old adage: “The evil you know is better than the evil you don’t know.” Isaiah 43 compels us to view our experience of God’s grace in the past as a springboard so that we see neither present nor future with fear but with expectation.
