Adult RE Forum: This week’s discussion topic: “Where Creativity Meets or Exposes our Sanity.” We will continue to explore ways our art, how we express ourselves through various art forms, both taps into who we are as well as how we want others to understand our complex inner selves
Sunday Service Program: How Do We Love Ourselves, Our Neighbors, and God?
Presented by Stephanie Hankins. Service Leader: Linda Larson.
Every large faith tradition offers some version of the golden rule. Many sages have repeatedly taught us that we are to strive to love ourselves, our neighbors, and love God, and often these are one or different versions of saying the same thing. Just like Mr. Rogers—who was a Presbyterian pastor!—repeatedly taught us that we are all neighbors. Yet, it's one thing to tell someone to love their neighbor, but how do we decide who are our neighbors? We all have to make decisions about whom to care for, whom to love, how to care for them, and why … so how might the Bible and our experiences help us as we approach such difficult questions? Stephanie Hankins is the Presbyterian campus minister for Presbyterian Episcopal Campus Ministry (PECM) at ASU. Her campus ministry space, 3rd Place, offers community programs focused on creativity, spirituality, and social justice. She and her husband Davis have two boys and are emergency foster parents for our community's Department of Social Services.
