Jonah Part 4 - Bobbi Salkeld

It’s not always easy to see ourselves as we truly are. But stories can help. When we listen carefully to a story that is authentic to the human experience, we come to know ourselves in new ways. 

The book of Jonah is one such story. Despite its rather fantastical qualities, the story of Jonah is a real human tale. A story of human failure and divine grace, a story of the interplay between duty observed and plain disobedience. A story of the internal conflict between authentic honesty and dishonest selfishness. It’s all here, all of the meaning and the mess of life. 

But the thing that makes Jonah’s story most helpful to us is how everything, all of it, is placed before God. And really, this is the thing most true about our humanity, the thing we most need to educate our imaginations with: there is no other kind of life except that which is lived before God. 

Jonah is not a children’s tale. It is a very grown up tale that ends with a very serious question: what kind of person will you be?

Romans V Part 4 - Bobbi Salkeld

Play

This is it.
Back in Rome for a final time.

Chapter by chapter, we’ve worked through this lengthy letter from the Apostle Paul. Along the way marking how his theology transformed as he grappled with the story of God in Christ.

Along the way, we’ve grown, and we’ve continued to let the gracious way of Jesus alter the way we think of the Divine.

How we look at each other. How we talk about faith.

So, if you’ve been with us since the beginning, come along as we jump in where we left off and see how Paul wraps things up.

And if you’re new to Commons, step a little closer to a text that’s shaped who we are and who we want to become.

The Gloria in Excelsis - Bobbi Salkeld

Play

What do your prayers sound like at this time of year? Please God, make time stand still so I can get ready
for Christmas. Please God, help me find a parking spot at the mall. Or, more seriously, Please God, turn this Christmas chaos into something calm.

Advent is a season of waiting, expectation, and hope. It doesn’t mean that all longings are realized, though.

And even as the story of Jesus begins with the angel announcing the birth
of the Saviour to Mary and the world, everyone in the story is given a voice. And those voices are heard in five prayers, traditionally called “A Pentad of Prayers.” Five prayers named after the Latin word for the start of each prayer.

The Fiat mihi - Let it be with me ...
The Magnificat - My soul magnifies ...
The Benedictus - Blessed be the Lord ...
The Gloria in excelsis - Glory to God in the highest ...
The Nunc dimittis - Now dismiss your servant ...

Which prayer will guide you through this season? Let’s find out, together.

Let Your Hair Down - Bobbi Salkeld

“Hospitality is not to change people, but to offer them space where change can take place.”

—Henri Nouwen

We’ve all likely had the experience where someone made space for us.
A grandparent, a dear friend, a stranger who didn’t speak our language, or even someone we didn’t agree with.

Maybe they offered us welcome. They made us feel safe.
They chose to be vulnerable.
They extended kindness when they could have withheld it.

Whatever the case, these kinds of experiences show us how powerful hospitality can be. How embrace transforms us. How, in a world of tension, hostility, and boundary-making, we often come alive when we choose to open and hold space for others.

Let’s consider how the Scriptures show us a God like this, always making room.
