From Reactivity to Spirituality - Vince Brackett

Across many traditions, mature, life-giving spirituality has often been understood as a move away from reactivity. That doesn’t mean removed or without emotion. It means deeply invested and affected, but in a way that is slowed down, wise, and aligned with our values. Jesus suggests we are loved and shaped away from reactivity by relationship with God.

De-Centralizing the God of the Powerful, Part 2 - Vince Brackett, Kyle Hanawalt

Spiritual fulfillment is something human beings long for, but Jesus suggested it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich (or privileged) person to find it. Vince shares some of the more humbling experiences on his journey of finding spiritual fulfillment by learning to align himself with the oppressed, rather than with his privilege.

Feminist Theology - Hayley Larson, Vince Brackett, Kyle Hanawalt

A Church-Outsider Perspective on Jesus - Maria Santillan, Vince Brackett, & Kyle Hanawalt

With help from BLC’s Maria Santillan, we consider how, in the same way microaggressions reinforce systemic racism in America, spiritual microaggressions in church settings reinforce systemic marginalizing of people whose family or culture don’t pre-dispose them to understand or be able to navigate American churches. Our church considers this a fight for equity — for the important perspective of church outsiders, like Maria, to be valued in spiritual conversations.

Sin Theologies vs Liberation Theologies - Vince Brackett & Kyle Hanawalt

De-Centralizing the God of the Powerful - Kyle Hanawalt, Vince Brackett

As we try to centralize the perspectives of oppressed voices on God and faith, part of what we must do is de-centralize the voices that have been dominant. Kyle, one of our pastors, shares some turning points in his life learning about God and faith, which each saw him leave behind a "God of the Powerful" and move closer to a "God of the Oppressed".
