Religion & Spirituality
Jesse and Anna use Luke 3:15-17, 21-22 and Isaiah 43:1-7 to explore what being “claimed” by God might mean or look like. Is it possession and ownership or might it be something deeper or more nuanced? Is it one-sided or mutual?
These scriptures clearly bring up the theme of baptism, but both Anna and Jesse find the idea of claiming or being claimed by God ties to the end of life and memorials. Anna brings up a scene from the movie “Dont Look Up” (*spoiler alert!*) and how it relates for her. Jesse recommends a song “How deep is that river” by Mason Jennings that resonates with the passages from today.

The ‘Greatest Commandment‘ but not the easiest
Honoring agency and seeing those in the margins
Letting go of systems of power
It‘s okay if everything is not okay
Finding God in the Community
