Finding happiness – reaching beyond the ego, the place of virtues, spiritual practices and postures

On the 5th Sunday of Easter 2010, Aaron Kennedy gave this homily exploring the emerging churches calling to promote forms of faith that reach beyond the ego. New monasticism constributes an ancient approach, using virtues, spiritual practices and postures.

For those who missed the service, please find the stations to reflect on below. Further we have put together a video metaphor for mooters to take away, contact Ian if you have not been given one of these.  So please do reflect on the stations below.  We reattach the proposal we are seeking to embed into the community.

Mobsby-Kennedy US Tour Update

Well, we are now in San Francisco, after completing talks now in Clarion, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, and New York. It has all gone very well, and people have been really receptive of the things we have been learning in Moot. Yesterday, I spent the day in a consultation day hosted by the Bishop of California in San Francisco on intentional communities, and it was fantastic. I learnt a lot about the combination of fresh expressions/emerging church and new forms of intentionality – such as new monasticism. Really inspiring. The Diocese of California and its new Bishop are extremely good. The Church of England can learn a lot from the incarnational vision of this Diocese, so rather than some people thinking negatively of ECUSA & this Diocese, I would go as far to say that it is one of the most missional and incarnational forms of Anglicanism I have experienced. Could you imagine an English Bishop being arrested for doing a Communion Service outside a Government building and laying on the floor in protest against the Iraq war – well this happened here. Wonderful.

Incidently – the photo of the redwoods above is where we are staying – in a beautiful house in a forest of redwoods in a place called Mill Valley. Never stayed in a such a place.

Today off for an emergent gathering and catching up with friends, before an evening presentation with the Diocese of California again…. Then a day off!!!! before going off to Denver.

Hope you are all ok – and that our Rhythm of life service is coming along!!
Cheers
Ian
