Simplicity

It’s complicated,” he said, as he talked about the dynamics of this season in his life. Heading toward the end of the year and the thickness of the holidays, he was listing all the demands on his life, the struggles with unique family and work dynamics, and the burn out associated with trying to keep up with it all. What would it take to simplify the whole thing? Sounds like a luxury, right? It’s hard to untangle the complicated webs of our lives when we’re in the throes of it all. However, it is critical to our well-being. Living well through Advent[1] is more than rearranging the externals in our lives. It’s an invitation to develop an interior simplicity. Such grounded peace can move from the inside out, making needed impact on the external factors that we typically let direct our internal stability. Join us for this counter-cultural journey reflective of that original quest toward Christmas as Jesus makes his way into our lives.

COVID Protocols @ Broadway
 
If we’ve learned anything during these past two years, it’s the way of flexibility. Between surges and variants, we’ve ridden as best we can the COVID waves that have paused, cancelled, and/or shifted plans more often than we’d like. We celebrate this elongated season of fewer cases in our community and a wide freedom to engage most all the practices we enjoyed pre-pandemic. There are no mask requirements or other COVID restrictions currently, though you are always welcome to wear masks and keep distance as you choose. We honor and respect your calculation of risk as you partake in worship and other in-person programs and experiences at this time.
 
If you are feeling ill in any way, it is best to choose our virtual options for worship until you are symptom free. We love that this option exists and give thanks for our tech team that makes it possible! Otherwise, our in-person experiences continue to grow and thrive, and we would love for you to join us.
Window hangings at BCCBroadway Christian Church has some lovely new window banners in the sanctuary. The six banners depict the biblical account of the six days of creation. Many thanks to Vickie Keeling Wallace, the chairperson of our Worship and Liturgical Arts committee, who arranged for Broadway to commission these banners with the support of the Worship Arts and Permanent Funds. Mosaic, fiber artist, Grace Cox-Johnson, of Color 4 the Journey created the banners over several months. We are blessed by this vision of beauty and color that grace our sanctuary windows. Take some time to enjoy and appreciate them and allow the Creation Story to enrich you again.
