Welcome to the Street Psalms Hub

Join us in weekly, monthly and seasonal rhythms where we practice doing theology from below, remember our shared vocation and induct each other into our collective humanity.

“Grant us the gift of becoming a community of the Incarnation - mystery of word made flesh, who sees and celebrates good news in hard places.”
(From Prayer of Vocation)

PROPER 11 (16) – Year B

Mark 6:30-34, 53-56

The apostles gathered around Jesus, and told him all that they had done and taught.

6:31 He said to them, “Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while.” For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat.

6:32 And they went away in the boat to a deserted place by themselves.

WEEKLY PREACHING PEACE TABLE

An initiative designed for pastors who are exploring together what it means to teach and preach a liberating Gospel of peace in their city. Pastors and teachers, from a diversity of traditions, gather weekly around the gospel lectionary text to ask a simple question. “How do we teach and preach this text for peace from our tradition for the sake of the city?”

Making Peace With God Fellowship

A 9-month fellows program designed for leaders who are exploring ordination with the Street Psalms community. It’s also for leaders who want to undergo the possibility of God in whom there is no violence. In either case, participants are part of a global conversation. They discover for themselves a way of seeing, doing and being that frees them to do things they never thought possible. Practical. Real. Challenging. Liberating. Formational.

Ordination

Street Psalms' ordained global community has a common vocation: to free others to love and serve according to the unique shape of our lives and context. What does this look like? Our ordained community includes nurses, teachers, non-profit leaders, pastors/clergy, and more. What they have in common is shared commitment to seeing and celebrating good news in hard places through a calling to free up others to love and serve. We do not ordain leaders to pastor local churches; rather, we are a sodal community in mission that serves local faith leaders and communities of all kinds who seek the common good of their city.
