This Sunday, Linda and I continue our conversations with our new series, “Disruptions: Parables and Pandemics.” Parables are meant to awaken us, to open us up to new ways of seeing something, of relating to the world, to God, or to ourselves. What inspires you to think differently? Come to eleven:eleven and explore these ideas with us!

The parables of Jesus are meant to baffle, and by that I mean to shake off our blinders, to reveal something we had not seen before, to think differently about things. Join us this Sunday as we explore Jesus the storyteller — and how primary means of teaching was through the use of parables.
On Sundays, at eleven:eleven downtown, Tom and I have been doing a lot of referencing to the concept of “Shalom”- most often translated as “peace,” but probably best understood as “peace, unity, wholeness of being, harmony.” Shalom is what God wants for you and me and for all creation.I hope you can join us as Tom and I continue our conversations on “Your Pandemic / Post-Pandemic Self” this Sunday as we’re “gonna get down and dirty with the resurrection”
Join us this Sunday, May 3, along with Brad Thompson, and singer/songwriter, Hannah Kirby! Linda and I continue our conversation about our “Pandemic/post-Pandemic Self.” Let’s explore some curious and hope-filled ideas about what the very ground of our being is inviting us to be in this anything but normal time. I believe there’s a better way. Maybe it’s time for a re-set.
My husband, Tom, and I are venturing into some new territory – dialogue sermons for the next few weeks during eleven:eleven. Essentially, talking together about what we’re thinking about talking about! It’s a little intimidating for me. But I’m willing to walk some new paths and hope you’ll be there with us as we explore what this time has to offer – as we explore this new series: Ctrl – Alt – Del (Your Pandemic/post-Pandemic Self).
This Sunday, April 19, Rev. Linda McDermott will be joining me, along with Peter Mayer AND Elizabeth Wills, as well as Brad Thompson and band members! We’ll have another hope filled and engaging online experience as Linda shares some thoughts about the story of Jesus’ first appearance to the disciples.
This Sunday is Easter! A celebration of resurrection and we have a hopeful and spirited celebration planned for eleven:eleven, downtown! We will be joined by the blues guitarist, Buddy Whittington, bassist Aden Bubeck, singer/songwriters Hannah Kirby and Krista Russell, as well as Brad Thompson and a few surprises!

We love laughter and no-holds-barred messages that question the answers and unmask the illusions as we search for the next chapter together. This is 55 minutes of authentic storytelling, great coffee, and meaningful conversation — with the music of Brad Thompson (Fort Worth Star Telegram’s “Best Local Musician”) and the Revolution Band doing some of your favorite pop, classic rock, and acoustic songs.
We’re passionately inclusive here at eleven:eleven, whether you identify as LGBTQ+ or straight, conservative or liberal, Christian or agnostic, young or old — or anywhere in between and beyond. We’re casual, “come as you wish,” non–traditional, and always curious about kindness, justice, our stories, Jesus’ life — and how to do our lives better.
Here’s your invitation to reconnect your spirit without disconnecting your mind. We believe in the universal love of God and your next adventure. Join this growing community and become part of our story — and let’s see where it takes us! #1111FUMCFW
