Sunday’s Program and Reading:

We Have Questions:
What’s the Point of a Religious Life (Part 2)?

Speaker: Kent Dobson has been the lead teacher at C3 since 2017. He’s also in the guide-in-training program at Animas Valley Institute in Colorado, an organization specializing in wilderness intensives. Kent leads Israel study tours, wilderness retreats, and has his own podcast called Hints and Guesses.

Musician: Kyle Rasche has carved his place as one of West Michigan’s most dependable songsmiths of the poetic, soul-bearing sort. 2021 saw his foray back into the solo-songwriter world, with a pile of new songs, and an updated list of accolades—including being named a finalist in Kerrville Folk Festival ’s prestigious New Folk Songwriting Competition.

Moment of Silence

Reading/Teaching: Kent Dobson

There is in every person an inward sea,
and in that sea there is an island
and on that island there is an altar
and standing guard before that altar
is the ”angel with the flaming sword.”
Nothing can get by that angel to be placed upon that altar
unless it has the mark of your inner authority.
Nothing passes ”the angel with the flaming sword”
to be placed upon your altar
unless it be a part of ”the fluid area of your consent.”
This is your crucial link with the Eternal.
– Howard Thurman, Meditations of the Heart
