Clean is Coming

Saturday, October 24th @ 7 pm
Greencastle Presbyterian Church

What is "Clean?": Clean is a worship experience aimed at moving us through a key thematic idea of Christian Scripture using word, art, music and testimony. As a community, time and space will be given for us to consider our life, our city, and our world. We will also carve out time to pray and to sing, to glorify God and invite God's care for our lives and world.

Is this a worship service?: Yes, but it is also more. In today's consumer culture, calling worship a service suggests that worship is something we consume. We go to church to get filled up. But worship of God is more than consumption. Worship is experience. Worship is encounter. Worship is transformation. Clean is a worship experience.

Who is welcome?: Again, Clean is a worship experience. So, anyone looking to encounter the living God is invited to come and listen, to sing and act.

Is this a one-time thing?: Yes and no. Yes, because we will only focus on this thematic idea this particular Saturday. But, every fourth Sunday of the month, we will explore another thematic idea of Scripture.

Where?: The worship experience will be held in the sanctuary of Greencastle Presbyterian Church, located at 653 S. County Road 100 E. The church is located next to the Putnam County Playhouse about one mile north of the intersection of Indianapolis Rd. and Roundbarn Rd/10th St. See the map below for more complete directions:

Acts 5:1-11 - Questions for reflection & prayer

This past Sunday we looked at one of the more unsettling stories in the Book of Acts:  the deaths of Ananias and Sapphira.  As shared by Luke, this couple sold a piece of land and then proceeded to bring only a portion of the profit to the apostles - laying it at their feet for the good of the community.  However, what appeared to be their grave mistake (pun intended) was their collusion in claiming to have brought all the proceeds to the apostles when - in fact - they were keeping some back for themselves.  Peter announces first to Ananias the Lord's judgment, followed by a similar verdict being handed down to Sapphira a short time later.

Seen by itself, this is a strange story, but it begins to make more sense when we see it as "part of the whole."  The story of Ananias and Sapphira comes right after we hear once again of the community's unity and generosity, including their willingness to share their own goods and resources to take care of one another (ch. 4).  Th…

Acts 6:1-6 - Questions for reflection & prayer

As the Holy Spirit empowers the Christian community, new life emerges and new members are added.  This is a beautiful thing, and it is extremely important to point out that this is God's doing.  God is initiating diversity within the Christian community.  However, this also creates new tensions and new challenges.

Acts 6:1-6 gives us our first glimpse of a tension that will extend all the way to chapter 15, until the leaders of the early Church come up with a way to address the growing differences within the Christian family.  Some feel that they are being left out and that others are getting preferential treatment.  The Hellenized Christians feel they are getting the short end of the stick.

All of this is extremely relevant to thoughts and feelings occurring in our own day and age.  Across the spectrum, a majority of Americans feel like they face some form of discrimination.  But, it also points to an ongoing challenge we all face from time to time, the challenges that arise when…

Life in Greencastle: That Greatest Architect

God's peace to all of you on this beautiful Saturday afternoon.  I hope you are enjoying the warm sunshine.  Perhaps you are even still enjoying one last sunset at the beach.
We stayed fairly close to home this Spring Break, taking two short trips, including one to Turkey Run State Park and the other to Columbus, Indiana.  Anna and I had been longing to go to Columbus for quite some time.  Back in the day, we became friends with Emily and Manish Desai in our small apartment complex in Pasadena, both of whom had recently graduated with degrees in architecture from Cal Poly.  Manish would go on to earn his license in architecture and has designed a number of really beautiful spaces, including private residences but also a church out in the desert for a Native American tribe.  Anna and I have always appreciated Manish and Emily's aesthetic, which is why we knew to take note when they started telling us about Columbus, Indaina a number of years ago.  They didn't know much abo…
