Summer Reading: The Universal Christ
Each week this summer, we will share a reflection on the Dean's summer reading selection, The Universal Christ by Richard Rohr. Paperback copies are available at cost in the cathedral office. This book will be the subject of our Advent Series beginning December 4th.
"Christ is not Jesus's last name." This is the title of Rohr's opening chapter. In this section, he makes a distinction between what he calls the "second incarnation"--when Jesus was born in Bethlehem--and the "first incarnation", described in Genesis, "when God joined in unity with the physical universe and became the light inside of everything." (p.13)
Had you ever connected Genesis with Christ? Do you believe, as Rohr says, that "everything visible, without exception, is the outpouring of God"? What might be challenging about that idea? What might be revelatory about that idea?
Oral History of the Cathedral
The Cathedral Archives Committee is hoping to embark on a multi-generational project to collect stories of life at the cathedral through the years. This project will link individual and collective pasts to the hopes and aspirations that we share for the future of the cathedral community.
The committee is gauging interest in the project in order to refine its scope. If you are interested, please fill out the survey online at www.tinyurl.com/CathedralArchivesProject or pick up a hard copy of the survey at the Welcome Table on Sundays.
Year-End Slideshow & Reports from Annual Meeting
You can view the year-end slideshow we showed at Pentecost and also check out the Dean's, Wardens', and Stewardship Reports from our annual meeting online at www.incarnationgc.org/annualmeeting.
