Just as Jesus called the first disciples to follow him, we are invited to be followers of “The Way.” In what’s known as the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus offers first a glimpse of the promise of life with God. As anyone who attempts the journey knows, it is never as simple as it seems. So after sharing the hope of what the world can be, Jesus offers practical advice on how exactly we as followers can begin to choose another way in our everyday lives–the way of happiness.

10 am – Noon
Pikes Peak Metropolitan Community Church
Free & open to the public
This session will be a conversation about prejudice, white privilege, and anti-racism work. This session is about what it means to become an ally (ally as a verb, not a noun) with people of color and standing against racism. We will explore these ideas:
- What are microaggresions?
- What does it mean to stand in solidarity with people of color?
- What spiritual practices can support the journey of becoming an ally?
While this conversation is especially helpful for people
who identify as white, anyone is welcome to attend.
Facilitated by Rev. Alycia Erickson

Living the Questions: Transformation
Facilitator: Pastor Alycia Erickson
Not sure what you believe? Do you have questions about what it means to be a Christian today? Do you want to take the next step in your spiritual life but don’t know how?
Consider joining us on Wednesdays at Pikes Peak MCC for a seven week series called Living the Questions 2.0: Transformation. This class is an opportunity to delve deeper into the wisdom of what has been discussed for generations but today is called “Progressive Christianity.” These seven weeks will explore spiritual practices that form a foundation for living out a faith that makes sense. We will explore the following topics during the seven weeks together:
A Kingdom without Walls / Social Justice: Realizing God’s Vision
Incarnation: Divinely Human / Prayer: Intimacy with God
Compassion: The Heart of Jesus’ Ministry
Creative Transformation / Embracing Mystery
Many of us know that at its core, Christianity has something good to offer the human race. At the same time, we have a sense that the version of Christianity we see in the media, or hear about in political debates, or read about in the news, isn’t the kind of faith we can embrace.
There is a revolutionary re-visioning of Christianity emerging in the world. It is our hope that [Living the Questions 2.0] will be a resource for you in joining with those who are discovering a faith that is relevant and meaningful in the twenty-first century.
Rev. David M. Felten and Rev. Jeff Proctor-Murphy,
Creators of Living the Questions 2.0
