Life Together

Artisan Summer Read 2015
June 21 – July 19, 2015

We kick off a thematic thread in which we think deeply about our second decade as a church with Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s classic meditation on Christian community: Life Together.

Message line-up:

6/21
Community
Pastor Scott Austin
Listen

Bonhoeffer writes, “Christianity means community through Jesus Christ and in Jesus Christ. No Christian community is more or less than this.” How can we live this out at Artisan, and how can our expression of community be a service of love to our neighbors?

6/28
The Day With Others
Pastor Scott Austin
Listen

Chapter two of Life Together deals with a normal day for Bonhoeffer and his seminary community: scripture, worship, prayer, meals, and work. What does this instruction have to offer us in our busy, modern, secular lives?

7/5
The Day Alone
Pastor Scott Austin
Listen

“Let him who cannot be alone beware of community”, Bonhoeffer writes, but also “Let him who is not in community beware of being alone.” How can we understand this dichotomy in our church community?

7/12
Ministry
Pastor Scott Austin
Listen

Bonhoeffer suggests a wide range of ministries that we can perform for each other community: meekness, helpfulness, listening, proclaiming, and “holding one’s tongue”. Which will be most challenging for you? For us?

7/19
Confession and Communion
Pastor Scott Austin
