Blessing of the Animals

Blessing of the Animals

Celebrating the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi

God loves what he has created! Think about it: God enjoys animals. Even cats. If God can love cats, imagine how much he loves you! Saint Francis of Assisi understood this well (except the part about the cats). He believed that nature itself reflected the glory of God, he called all creatures his "brothers" and "sisters", and even preached to the birds! Honoring this legacy, the church throughout history has hosted a blessing of the animals in Francis' name.

Celebrating with St. Francis all that God has created, Rez is excited to host our first annual feast of St. Francis celebration at our favorite Pub. Bring your animal (on a leash) as we ask for God's blessing on our pets, all of creation, and on us.

Invite your friends, it's an open invitation! RSVP so that we know how many humans and animals we're hosting.

Who Is My Neighbor? - Immigration
Aug

Who Is My Neighbor? - Immigration

Often when we think of our neighbors, we think of those who live next door to us or share our towns and cities. However, Jesus expands the definition of neighbor to those who are easy to "other" for any multitude of reasons. The current discussions of immigration are an example of a place to face what it means to love our global neighbors well, and to welcome the stranger--as God has so graciously done for us. Please join us on Saturday, August 10th, where we will be continuing our Neighbor Series on the topic of Immigration. Martha Davenport has been so gracious as to share her story.


Location: Rez South Austin Sanctuary

Childcare will not be provided. There will be snacks and beverages, so please RSVP so that we can prepare for whom will be able to join.

Crossing Brokenness: Discerning the Good News in a Wounded World
Aug

10:00 AM10:00

Crossing Brokenness: Discerning the Good News in a Wounded World

One of Jesus’ final prayers for his disciples was that they all may be one. To that end, the four central Texas churches in our C4SO diocese [link to C4SO website] are gathering for an evening of worship and storytelling. We’re going to be exploring this idea: How does Christianity have good news for a broken world? We all encounter different levels of brokenness—in our lives, our communities, in personal and impersonal ways. So how do we respond with good news to the brokenness that crosses our path? Join us Sunday August 4th at 6pm at 112 Medina. Light refreshments served and childcare provided for ages 5 and under.

Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday celebrates the night that Jesus commanded (or "maundy" meaning mandated) the celebration of Holy Eucharist. In John's Gospel, we also know Jesus washed his disciple's feet as an example for them, which we also observe in this service. The altar is then stripped of all linens and decoration and all leave in silence.

Who Is My Neighbor? - Becoming a Bridge Builder

Living As A Bridge Builder - Potluck Dinner & Discussion

Sunday, Feb 17 at 5:30 pm to hear from Andrew Hartwell
Childcare Provided.

"Who Is My Neighbor?" is a discussion group which gathers once a quarter to explore the topics that divide our neighborhood. As Christians, we are learning how to discern the Kingdom in the midst of issues around race, sexuality, economic practice, politics and other public issues that we believe the Gospel speaks to.

Please join us in the Rez Sanctuary at Eden Park Academy.  Andrew Hartwell will share about his recent return to Bayshore Christian Ministries (BCM) where he led and served from 1984-2008. BCM serves the youth of East Palo Alto, CA.  Andrew was part of the 4% white population of the city while he lived and worked there. His life and ministry there were largely shaped by John Perkins' 3 R's of Christian Community Development - Relocation, Reconciliation, and Redistribution. He will be sharing from lessons he has learned in the area of racial reconciliation and healing.

For questions or more information on this ministry contact Dr. Britt Stone.

Who is My Neighbor?

10:00 AM10:00

Who is My Neighbor?

The “Who is My Neighbor?” conversations are safe places to talk about how we, as a Christian community, can witness to God’s work of mercy and reconciliation through Jesus. They are conversations about our biggest challenges about our bodies, identify, and faith placed under the care of God and worked out in community. While we are concerned with arriving at better answers, we want to begin with better questions by becoming a listening and discerning people. 

On May 5th at 5:00 PM we are hearing from some minority members of Rez about their experience with race, gender, and inequality. Join us afterward if you are able, to grab some tacos for dinner. 
 

Contact shawn@rezaustin.com if you could use childcare.
