January 7- February 11: Grace Notes

Grace note - a short, swift note played before a melodic note.

Grace is at the heart of Christian faith and is a hallmark of United Methodist spiritual tradition. Grace is amazing, beautiful, and healing. What makes it so? What is grace? Is it something we receive or share or see? In this series we will explore these questions along with what John Wesley called the “means of grace,” especially focusing on the sacraments of Holy Baptism and Communion. We and all creation are part of God’s love song, sustained by the rhythm of grace. Join us to learn about “Grace Notes” and engage the practices that help attune your heart to the rhythm of God’s grace.

2017-2018 Theme: 

Faith Remastered

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.
