Scott Erickson at Salt House

SCOTT ERICKSON at SALT HOSUE

You're invited to bring food to share for the morning - finger-food/appetizer style. Salt House will be providing some food, too. We'll let you know soon what that will look like

Help get the word out - If you're social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and would be willing to help share about the Scott Erickson event next week, I've put together several resources you can use to do that --> Photos and sample posts.


Join us for an exceptionally special experience at Salt House on Sunday morning, March 3 with Scott Erickson. We asked Scott if he’d come and spend some time with us at Salt House on a Sunday morning and said YES! Scott will be sharing his newest piece called SAY YES: A LITURGY OF NOT GIVING UP ON YOURSELF.


SAY YES is a multimedia storytelling experience that deals with the painful death of a dream.
When your dreams die, the voice of Giving Up speaks very poignantly about what your next options should be. But I discovered a hidden deeper path emerges. one that leads to an unexpected conversation with desire, vocation, and existence itself. “Liturgy” simply mean the “work of the people”…and our conversations about existence, giving up, suicide, disappointment, desires, vocation, hopes, dreams are communal conversations that we should corporately construct before existence itself. And they should involve comedy, singing, and art making. This is what we’ll do together.

Ash Wednesday

Join us on Wednesday, March 6 at 7:00pm for our Ash Wednesday service. Ash Wednesday kicks off the season of Lent, a season of journeying with Jesus to the cross. During Lent, we will engage in asking questions about suffering, mortality, pain, and what it means to live fully in the midst of uncertainty and the inevitability of death.

During Lent we continue focusing on the practice and diversity of prayer with a book PRAYER: Forty Days of Practice* by Scott Erickson and Justin McRoberts. Books will be available for pre-order this Sunday for $12 and can be picked up on Sunday, March 3. If you have any questions, connect with Taren Grass.

*Prayer: Forty Days of Practice was originally self-published by Justin and Scott in 2016. They’ve revised and updated the book (which is now available with a hard cover) and has been officially published through Penquin Random House. We are thrilled for both Justin and Scott as this beautifully written, timely, and deeply transformative book is reaching people and speaking with a true, encouraging, and practical voice to those who seek to engage in the practice of prayer.

Salt House Families Gathering

Salt House Families gathering is on Saturday, March 23 at 5:30pm.

As families, we try to get together for a time of connection and food potluck style. It usually goes like this: we eat all together (usually the kids eat first) in a bit of chaos!  Then we send the kids off to the basement or another space with two sitters, while the parents have an hour to eat, talk about what's happening in our lives, and pray.  We usually chip in to cover the cost of the sitters (About $10 per family)

Meals Thrive Team Meeting

Meals Thrive Team Meeting

You’re invited to attend the Meals Thrive Team meeting, especially if you’re interested in the shared experience of eating together at Salt House. We are looking for people who would like to invest in the communal dynamic of our shared meals together at Salt House.

We are meeting from 11:15 a.m. until about 12:15 p.m. on Sunday, January 27 at Salt House.

Two points of clarification:

  1. You don’t need to be a foodie person or even a skilled cook to be involved with this team; if you share a desire to see our “eating together” times gathered around tables continue to develop as one of our core practices, you are invited.

  2. This meeting is for anyone who is interested in sharing thoughts, ideas, reflecting your experience, and/or asking questions. Additionally, if you’re ready to jump in and get to work with this team of beautiful people, this is the place for you.

If you have any questions, you connect with us HERE and we’ll direct the questions to the correct leaders!

ABOUT THE BOOK

The love of God crosses all boundaries. Every. Single. One.

Every day, millions of people lament the loss of civility, respect, and hope, and they wonder if it's possible to cultivate a love big enough to overthrow hate and heal our hurts. With courage, authenticity, and relevance, Jacqueline A. Bussie proclaims, "Yes! It's possible!" and urges readers to widen love's wingspan and to love as God loves--without limits or exceptions.

In Love Without Limits, Bussie imparts practical solutions for people of faith who yearn to love across division and difference in these troubled times. Through poignant personal memoir, engaging theological reflection, inspiring true stories of boundary-busting friendships, creative readings of scripture, and surprising shout-outs to some of love's unsung heroes, Bussie challenges readers to answer God's call to practice a love so deep, it subverts the social order; so radical, it scandalizes the powerful; so vast, it excludes no one.

"A must-read for all Christians interested in inclusivity for their communities." --Publishers Weekly
