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)

Community Rhythms

We follow a three-year lectionary cycle. We are currently in the Season of Lent, Year B:

First Sunday in Lent – Year B

Mark 1:9-15

In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.

1:10 And just as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit descending like a dove on him.

1:11 And a voice came from heaven, “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.”

WEEKLY PREACHING PEACE TABLE

An initiative designed for Tacoma-area 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.
