2019 Montview Church Distinguished Lectureship - Dr. Elaine Pagels

Montview blvd.png

“ART, MUSIC, and POLITICS in the BOOK OF REVELATION”

Sunday, November 18, 7:00 p.m., Sanctuary

Dr. Pagels will present on the Book of Revelation. Then, in dialogue with Dr. Timothy Beal, Professor of Religion at Case Western Reserve University, she will demonstrate the enormous influence of this book in Western culture and how it has played itself out in politics from the first century until today. Dr. Pagels’ recent book, Revelations, and Dr. Beal’s new book, The Book of Revelation: A Biography, will both be available for purchase.

“WHY RELIGION? A PERSONAL STORY”

Monday, November 19, 7:00 p.m., Sanctuary

Drawing from her latest book, Why Religion? (to be released November 6, 2018), Dr. Pagels will share how she, given her relatively secular background, grew fascinated with questions about Christian origins and became an historian of gnosticism and early Christianity—and how that story is interwoven with events in her life that impelled her to ask the questions that she asks in her books. Here she will speak in a more personal way.

Dr Elaine Pagels.jpg

Dr. Elaine Pagels is the Harrington Spear Paine Foundation Professor of Religion at Princeton University. A preeminent scholar of early Christianity, her many bestselling books include The Gnostic Gospels, The Origin of Satan, and Revelations: Visions, Prophecy, and Politics in the Book of Revelation. The recipient of a MacArthur “genius” Fellowship, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and a National Humanities Medal from President Barack Obama, she has also won a National Book Award and a National Book Critic’s Circle Award. Her next book, Why Religion?, draws from her own life to rethink our connection to the spiritual dimension of human experience.

The Montview Distinguished Lectureship Series was established in 1957, and has hosted countless influential scholars and speakers including Reinhold Niebuhr, Paul Tillich, Marcus Borg, John Dominic Crossan, Anne Lamott, Teresa Fry Brown and Walter Brueggemann. Both November lectures are free and open to the public.

Stephen Ministry Workshop - St. James Presbyterian Church

St_James_Logo.png

Stephen Ministry is a non-denominational care-giving Christian ministry that supports those who are experiencing a crisis, such as death of a loved one, divorce, major illness, or loss of a job. The Stephen Minister meets regularly with the Care Receiver, men with men and women with women, to listen in confidence as that person reviews his or her innermost feelings, thoughts and concerns. The Stephen Minister is not a psychiatrist, nor does he or she offer solutions to the Care Receiver’s concerns. Instead, the Stephen Minister presents a confidential ear that allows the Care Receiver to clear the mind of his or her innermost thoughts.

Stephen Ministry logo.jpg

St James Presbyterian in Littleton is sponsoring a Stephen Ministry Introductory Workshop on Saturday, November 3, from 9am to 1pm. It’s an excellent opportunity to learn more about Stephen Ministry and how your congregation can become involved. Those who attend will also experience a sample of Stephen Ministry training and learn care-giving skills they can use right away.

The cost is $15.00 per person or $50.00 per congregation (four or more). To register, visit www.stephenministry.org workshop or call Stephen Ministries at 1 (314) 428-2600.

Women's Day Program - Presenting Dr. Christine Mann Darden

Please join Presbyterian Women at Peoples Presbyterian Church, 2780 York Street, Denver, CO 80207. Service begins at 10:00 am.

Darden.jpg

“Hidden Figures”: First the book, and then the movie, has inspired millions by revealing how hard working “human computers” guided and supported the development and implementation of the United States of America Space Program.

Dr. Darden, a native of Monroe, NC, will share her faith journey and her career journey at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). In her presentation, Order my Steps… she will share the challenges she faced as an African American woman working in an industry controlled by white males during the 1960’s, 1970’s and 1980’s.

After five years of working as a “Computer” at NASA, she was transferred to an engineering section that worked on Sonic Boom Minimization. Her research centered around techniques to reduce the annoying sound that accompanies airplanes when they travel faster than the speed of sound. She has authored over 57 technical papers and articles, primarily in the areas of sonic boom prediction, sonic boom minimization, and supersonic wing design.

Dr. Darden has been recognized with dozens of awards and honors—including two NASA Medals, one for her work and leadership of the Sonic Boom Program, and the other for her active involvement in working with and encouraging students to pursue careers in Math and Science.

Dr. Darden, an ordained elder in the Presbyterian Church (USA), has served many areas in her local church, such as Chair of the Presbytery Council in the Presbytery of Eastern Virginia; as Moderator of the Synod of the Mid-Atlantic; as Vice Moderator of the General Assembly Committee on Representation, and as Co-Chair of the Advisory Committee for Social Witness Policy.

In 2017, Dr. Darden was one of the “human computers” featured in the book “Hidden Figures,” and she has spoken to groups all over the United States about lessons to be learned in that movie.

September 11 | 6:45 pm-10 at Sié Theater | $15.00

Immigrant Detention Short Films- (Immigrants for Sale, Immigrant Prisons, Deportation Nation, Beyond the Wall) 

This Good Cinema event, the second of our three-part film series on social justice, explores an issue that has garnered widespread attention under Trump’s zero-tolerance, immigrant detention policy at the border. We will screen four short films, Immigrants for Sale, Immigrant Prisons, Deportation Nation, and locally produced Beyond the Wall. This will be followed by an audience discussion led by a panel of experts to be announced soon.

We are a country built by immigrants, but similar to various points in our country’s history, we find ourselves at a crossroads in the way our government is approach immigration issues. Families are fleeing their homes and coming to America with hopes of refuge and a fresh start, but instead of welcoming them, our government has taken a zero-tolerance policy to border security. The result has been families being separated and detained, due process being ignored, and a growing anti-immigrant rhetoric that is driving a wedge across America. Are we really safer by enforcing a hardline stance on immigration? Do immigrants take away or contribute to our economy? Why are refugees fleeing to our country, and what can we do as a community to humanely address this issue in a way that benefits our society? Let's talk about it.

The Presbytery of Denver Immigration Task Force invites us to attend this movie viewing.

What Not to Wear: A Make-Over Retreat for your Spirit

Do you have clothes in your closet you haven’t worn in years, but just can’t let go? Do you have outfits that make you feel spectacular and others that make you feel dumpy? It’s the same way with life. The attitude you choose to “wear” every day will affect how you feel, how you interact with others, and how well your day goes. We are going to get busy and clean some closets together with the goal of fully engaging in and appreciating every day.

We hope you’ll join us for this wonderful women’s weekend that we promise will be incredibly fun and uplifting for your spirit!

Not one more. We cannot allow one more child to be shot at school. We cannot allow one more teacher to make a choice to jump in front of a firing assault rifle to save the lives of students. We cannot allow one more family to wait for a call or text that never comes. Our schools are unsafe. Our children and teachers are dying. We must make it our top priority to save these lives. 

March For Our Lives is created by, inspired by, and led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become all too familiar. In the tragic wake of the seventeen lives brutally cut short in Florida, politicians are telling us that now is not the time to talk about guns. March For Our Lives believes the time is now. 

On March 24, the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Washington, DC to demand that their lives and safety become a priority. The collective voices of the March For Our Lives movement will be heard. 

School safety is not a political issue. There cannot be two sides to doing everything in our power to ensure the lives and futures of children who are at risk of dying when they should be learning, playing, and growing. The mission and focus of March For Our Lives is to demand that a comprehensive and effective bill be immediately brought before Congress to address these gun issues. No special interest group, no political agenda is more critical than timely passage of legislation to effectively address the gun violence issues that are rampant in our country. 

Every kid in this country now goes to school wondering if this day might be their last. We live in fear. 

It doesn’t have to be this way. Change is coming. And it starts now, inspired by and led by the kids who are our hope for the future. Their young voices will be heard. 

Stand with us on March 24. Refuse to allow one more needless death.

MARCH FOR OUR LIVES!

Suicide and gun violence affects everyone in our communities, including the church. Many churches have responded with their own resources or in partnership with a few other churches. We can raise the level and scope of the conversation and involvement by including pastors, youth & family educators, and adult volunteers in our local churches who want to be involved but don’t know how.

Dan Adams at Sources of Strength facilitate a “roundtable” conversation on celebrating and normalizing strengths including how to work together to make our communities stronger, healthier, and grow resilience among our teens and adults. Topics of discussion include peer leadership and training, faith and liturgical resources for
churches, and community partnership.

Trigger: The Ripple Effect of Gun Violence

Trigger: The Ripple Effect of Gun Violence

  • North Highlands Presbyterian Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Screening and Discussion

Whenever an act of gun violence occurs, communities are fractured at every level. This is what makes TRIGGER: The Ripple Effect of Gun Violence such a powerfully moving film. TRIGGER shares the stories of individuals that encounter gun violence in various sectors of our communities: parents, children, and siblings of victims, school teachers, trauma surgeons, law enforcement, legislators, pastors and grief counselors. Although we often think of a bullet as being an end, for those affected, it is only the beginning. 

The documentary frames gun violence as both a disaster and a public health issue. It addresses the critical issue of gun violence prevention by moving the conversation away from the polarizing extremes that have long dominated the debate and lifting up the voice and experiences of those who seek common ground and a new way forward.
