Breakfast Liturgy, Sunday Jan. 22nd :: Birthing the Kingdom ::

 

Dearest Friends,

I hope you are staying safe and warm. What a week! For some this was a great time to try new baking recipes, watch a few movies, make snowpeople with the kids and get caught up with school work. While others are suffering from the proverbial cabin fever and are ready to interact with other human beings. Yes, there are other people in planet Hoth (that is a reference to a frozen planet in the movie Stars Wars, the original series). 

Hoping that things thaw out, Breakfast Liturgy gathers this Sunday January 22nd at 10AM.    Please fill out the food form to let us know what you are planning to bring. This help us enjoy a delicious healthy balance.  Link to form. Following are some new fun developments in our community. 

News: 
  • Breakfast Liturgy Dinners - a paradox, a postmodern juxtaposition? No, just another opportunity to be together, to enjoy food, and build community. Soon I will be communicating with you with more details about this. For now, the idea is to gather at one of our homes for a delicious potluck dinner the Saturday between Breakfast Liturgy Sundays. If you are interested in hosting (providing the space) one of the dinners, let me (Eliacin) know. 
  • Breakfast Liturgy’s Breakfast Goodness Recipe Book - While that is not the official title, you get the gist. The idea is to gather, collect, harvest, create, brew recipes of scrumptious breakfast dishes and publish a book. Print or digital? Both? That still to be decided. However, start collecting and experimenting with recipes. Take some photos of food, write some reflections, stories to contribute. Stay tuned for more.

Gospel Reading for Sunday:

Mark 1:14-20

Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news.”

As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the sea— for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, “Follow me and I will make you fish for people.” And immediately they left their nets and followed him. As he went a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John, who were in their boat mending the nets. Immediately he called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men, and followed him.

"All that is eternal in me
welcomes the wonder of this day,
the field of brightness it creates
offering time for each thing
to arise and illuminate’

Link to: Why is the ‘Seattle Freeze’ so hard to melt?
I believe Breakfast Liturgy has emerged as a community that perhaps in a humble way embrace the Benedictine value of stability. Our community embodies a deep commitment to grounded relationships, in contrast with the transient nature of relationships in the Northwest. One of my images is that Breakfast Liturgy is a community in which the Seattle freeze melts away.

Happy New Year! Happy Epiphany! (Jan. 6)

This is a time of the year in which recognize the gift of the Christ child and embrace the hope of God manifesting Godself among us.  May the Morning-Star of Epiphany and the world’s New Dawn, lead you, warm your heart, fortify your will, enkindle your devotion, enlighten and illumine your inward vision! May the Light of the World, guide you all the days of your earthly pilgrimage. 
We come together this Sunday for our first gathering of 2012. In our gathering we enjoy communion through sharing our stories and eating together. We create community by working together and praying for one another. 
This Sunday is known in the liturgical calendar as the Baptism Of Our Lord.
