A Tempo

  : in time – a phrase used in music to indicate a return to the original tempo, or pace, or a composition

The tempo of life often feels frenetic. We find ourselves swinging from the rapid beat of righteous anger to the slow thump of hopelessness, between periods in which we look for a fight, and times when there’s no fight left in us.

In these moments, whether times of frenzy or frazzle, God invites us to return to God’s pace, finding our own original rhythm in sacred spiritual disciplines, intentional Christian community, rest, reflection, and renewal. Once again, living within this cadence, we’re empowered not only to endure days of difficulty, but also to thrive as we work toward justice, righteousness, and beloved community.

Faith Remastered

remaster -  to make a new copy of a musical recording or film with the sound or image improved

The master copy of a composition is the original version.  Now, with the aid of technology, musical recordings and films can be remastered.  Often the remastered versions reveal new depth, clarity, and richness of color and tone. Remastering enlivens enjoyment of classics by those who have long cherished them and makes them available and accessible to new listeners and viewers.

This year at Foundry, we will play with the concept of remastering as we return to the classics of our faith tradition.  We will examine the core teachings and tenets of Christian faith – stories from scripture, worship practices, theological concepts, and dynamics of covenant relationship. Together, we will pick up these powerful stories and practices, dust them off, and consider them afresh as resources for our journey. The language of music and melody will weave throughout the year as we deepen and renew our living faith.
