Dealing With Our Stuff: Freedom In Possessions

We all have limited, finite space in our homes which naturally fills up with our things. Even when it comes time to “spring clean,” why is it so difficult to face down the excess that fills up our homes? Denver Pres member Tana Padilla is a professional home manager and personal organizer who takes a therapeutic approach to helping people work through their connections to their things and to understand what they should keep and why. She will share her thoughts on how you can begin changing your relationship with your possessions, to ultimately work toward more freedom in your life.

Dealing With Our Stuff: Freedom In Possessions

Science Fiction: How Spaceships and Dragons Help Our Lives

Speculative Fiction, sometimes called fantasy and science fiction, is often thought to be the more frivolous genres of storytelling. But their seemingly far-fetched characters and settings provide a great space for the imagination to wrestle with intense issues. Jason Walch will lead a discussion of speculative fiction and share his own experience and ‘best practices’ when enjoying stories of long, long ago in galaxies far, far away.

Shepherding Your Kids

Many Christian parents strongly desire for their children to follow Jesus now, and into adulthood. But knowing how to foster their relationship with God can sometimes be a confusing and intimidating prospect: How do we engage with the gospel on a daily basis with our kids? On top of that, we sense our own limitations and failings, which can be discouraging. Tally Flint will draw wisdom from her own experience (and the experience of others) on how to view the privilege of nurturing your kids toward Jesus, as well as provide some practical ideas and resources for how to do this intentionally.

Toxic Church: Spiritual Abuse in the Family of God

Some of us at Denver Pres have had experiences in the past withchurchor ministry cultures that were unhealthy or oppressive. Many of these cultures were deeply affected by a lack of understanding of the good news of Jesus. Mark Miller and Christian Swan examine some of these experiences for us, helping us to see what makes achurch culture healthy, what patterns are potentially unhealthy, and give guidance on how we can all journey on a path toward healing with those in our community who are hurting.

Toxic Church: Spiritual Abuse in the Family of God

Culture Care: Reconnecting With Beauty For Our Common Life

When God created humans to live on his good earth, he didn’t just provide the basic necessities for us to survive, he heaped countless layers of beauty for us to enjoy. From the glories of landscape, sky, patterns, and color in nature, to the creative powers latent in each human being, we are creatures wired to reflect God by creating and participating in beauty. Steeping ourselves in beauty is not just a luxury, but a core need we share with the rest of humanity. Chris Mancuso is an architect and wants to help us notice the ways that beauty (or lack thereof) profoundly impacts our lives, whether we know it or not. In what ways can Christians participate in art and beauty to promote the flourishing of our own lives and in the world, especially where we see fragmentation and dysfunction?

Ending the Cycle: Becoming a Trauma-Sensitive Community

Whether you've experienced trauma in your childhood or not (45% of us have) , we all have a tremendous opportunity to stop cycles of trauma and provide healing for both adults and kids. Christine Beck (RN, BSN) showed us how ACEs ("adverse childhood experiences" which are traumatic events) can have negative, lasting effects on physical and mental health far into adulthood. One part of growing in empathy and compassion for each other (in any circle we’re in) is to understand how each other’s childhoods affect our current lives. For those who have experienced more than one ACE, there is hope and a solution: stable, safe relationships. And we can all participate in the work of relationships.

The Spaces That Shape Us

God made humans to not merely interact with creation, but to add to it. Architects dream and design the structures and spaces we inhabit, and when we pay attention to the built environment around us, we recognize how every space we interact with shapes us at a very deep level. Our culture often places beauty in an optional, “aesthetics” category rather than seeing it as a functional, necessary part of both our civic and our internal life. In this conversation, led by architect Will LoPatriello, we discussed how to become aware of the spaces we inhabit and how we can practice observing and interacting with the built environment around us.

Shame Resilience

Shame has recently become a popular topic of conversation in our culture. But why do we talk about shame? What IS it exactly? Shame can be difficult to define.Distinguished from other emotions (like guilt, or embarrassment), shame is the belief that there is something fundamentally wrong with us, at a base identity level. The experience of shame is universal to every human, by virtue of living life in a broken world, and can show up in every life context - friendship, vocation, marriage, work, parenting, sexuality.Shame scrambles the signals in our brain and body in a way that disrupts our thinking and feeling, and this disruption teaches us to isolate ourselves. A small, but stacked, panel of Denver Pres people in mental health professions (headed up by Nina Walch) guided us through this conversation, giving us vocabulary to process shame, and helping us maintain hope as we move forward on a path of growth and healing.
