Here is the CHAT Starter for September 28 at 10am:
Encountering MYSTERY – AWE!
JOHN PHILIP NEWELL is a gifted teacher and writer whose passion for Celtic Christianity opens readers to new ways of exploring ancient WISDOM. Drawing on a rich tradition, Newell provides vital insights into the pressing problems of 21st century Christianity. By embracing the wisdom of Celtic Christianity, we can learn how to listen to the sacred in nature and within one another, which our culture – at the times even our faiths – have made us forget what each of us already know deep in our souls but have learned to suppress. Sacred Earth, Sacred Soul offers a new spiritual foundation for our lives.
RELEARNING WHAT OUR SOULS ALREADY KNOW
“Newell offered me a new creation story for Christian faith. I commend his book to anyone who is ready to be born again.” BARBARA BROWN TAYLOR
“Newell invites us into the counterintuitive truth that much of the wisdom we need to navigate this moment has already been spoken in the past. I’m convinced that we’ve only begun to see just how far and wide his voice is going to be heard.” ROB BELL
“Newell reaches new depths in his vision of the earth and the human journey. We need this Celtic wisdom urgently.” RICHARD ROHR
Topic: BOOK CLUB Zoom

After 90 years of living fully, loving wastefully, and being all that he could be Bishop John Shelby Spong died peacefully in his sleep on Sunday September 12, 2021. A giant of a man in more ways that one, Jack’s towering presence will continue to live in the lives of the millions of people he blessed with his presence.
The Holy Cross community is indebted to Jack for his wisdom, generosity, and kindness. We were blessed to welcome Jack to our small congregation three times. During his visits with us Jack and his beloved Christine became fast friends.
Jack heralded Holy Cross as “the jewel of the North!” We at Holy Cross will continue to herald Jack as a beloved friend and teacher. Thanks be to ALL that IS HOLY for a life well lived!
The video below was recorded on a beautiful Sunday morning in May of 2011. The sermon was the icing on the cake of a weekend filled with Jack’s characteristic whit and wisdom.
