Mistakes and Miracles

High Street Church Zoom Worship with Rev. Sarah Oglesby-Dunegan – October 24, 2021

Rev. Sarah invites us to read and learn from the book “Mistakes and Miracles: Congregations on the Road to Multiculturalism” by (Rev.) Nancy Palmer Jones and Karin Lin. Her sermon will highlight some of the key lessons in the first four chapters of this book and their relevance to High Street’s own potential work.

The Future of High Street: Part 1 of 3

High Street Church Zoom Worship with Rev. Sarah Oglesby-Dunegan – October 3, 2021

Rev. Sarah and the transition team engage in a vision process to uncover the potential future of High Street. As High Street prepares for moving back into their building and its next ministry, we will dream together, remember together, and weave together–weave a new story to hold and to challenge this congregation. Rev. Sarah will offer some possibilities in a sermon, and then High Street folks will be invited to listen to each other in a conversation facilitated by transition team members. What kind of community is High Street and what can High Street offer Macon/MIddle Georgia? What do members need from each other? How can High Street live into its potential, and what might happen if it did? How might High Street need to change in order to fulfill these dreams? Rev. Sarah will share how other congregations have approached these pivotal conversations and what they created as a result.

A Theology of-by-for Cats …

High Street Church Zoom Worship with Rev. E. Arlen Goff – June 27, 2021

In ancient Egypt, cats were worshiped. They have never let us forget it. Whether or not you have a resident divine feline, this message will either enlighten and enliven you, fill you with copious amounts of cuteness and warm fuzzies, or leave you with a profound sense of dread. Just remember these most holy words and repeat them over and over (much like a Hindu or Buddhist mantra): Cats rule; dogs drool!

 

Caring for and Being Cared for: Stories of Nurturing

High Street Church Zoom Worship with Cynthia Alby and Rev. Sarah Oglesby-Dunegan – May 9, 2021

We often think of nurturing as a role for women and mothers, but all of us can be nurturing and all of us receive nurturing from a myriad of people and places. What happens when we extend ourselves in this way with one another? How is this connected to both the healing of the planet and ourselves simultaneously?
