"I've Been Meaning to Ask"

Join us as we launch our new worship series from A Sanctified Art - "I've Been Meaning to Ask" - listening to each other's stories and experiences to learn who and what has shaped us. 

October 3 

Where are You From? 

We believe everyone is beloved, shaped from the dust of the earth and the breath of God.  Everyone has a story to tell.  Our stories are messy and beautiful, painful and hopeful - being written and rewritten over time.  Join us as we discover how to address our assumptions and what it means to stay curious.

"I've Been Meaning to Ask 
 

Our leading question, “I’ve been meaning to ask… ”conveys intentionality, warmth, curiosity, and consideration. In essence, this question also implies the following

statements: “I’ve been thinking about you and I’ve been wanting to check in… You’ve been on my mind… I haven’t known how to have this conversation, but I’m getting

started with a question.” The ellipses

symbolize the main objective of our series: to cultivate courageous conversations— and to keep having them, even if we need to pause. Our weekly sub-themes provide a trajectory for going deeper. As you can see, these questions aren’t surface level; they invite us to share our pain and seek ways to care for one another. We pray that through vulnerability and authenticity

these conversations lead us to glimpse hope, joy, and beauty.

 

This series alone will not resolve our

divisions and differences. However, it will invite us to behold each other as images of the divine. It will help us strengthen our capacity for empathy and compassion. It will show us the simple power of asking unassuming questions. It will remind us that courage is rooted in the heart.

About Our New "Temporary" Location 
50 Colvin Avenue, Albany

Journey will be moving into a new home some time this wintery.  While that location is being renovated, we'll be gathering in a smaller location at 50 Colvin Avenue in Albany.  There's plenty of parking in the rear of the building  Use the back entrance and follow the signs down the stairs.

Children and Worship

During worship we have a special time for children.  Children of all ages are welcome to share in an interactive telling of a story.  We even give you ideas to follow up when you get home.  #WorshipTogether #PlayTogether #GrowTogether.
