    Contemplative Prayer Gathering

    8:00 AM
    October 14, 2020
    All are invited to a shared Contemplative Gathering every Wednesday morning to gather together in silence and sit in communal contemplation. This is an opportunity to find grounding in the moment, and to share in that grounding energy with similarly self-directed explorers. The last ten minutes of the session are devoted to sharing aloud prayers that have been submitted during the week.
    If you have anyone in your heart for whom you would like to request a prayer, please use this form before 7 p.m. on the Tuesday before the session to submit your request. Prayer requests will be accepted on a first-requested, first-offered basis until capacity (still being determined) is met for our available time. Please be brief in the wording of your requests. Please contact Scott Campbell for more information.

    The Radical Death Series

    All day
    October 17, 2020

    The phrase, “a good death” has become more and more prevalent in the public conversations around death and dying. But in many ways, that phrase creates a narrow focus that excludes issues of justice that are tightly woven into death as they are into life. The Radical Death Series, starting on Saturday, October 17th, is a four-part series of conversations that will help widen our lens and broaden our scope when engaging in discussions around death and dying. Each month, we will center on one topic, including access to “a good death,” and the racial disparities within the death positive movement, the nuances of ancestral honoring, a session on the collective grief of this moment in history, and an application event where we discuss the inevitability of death, the denial of death, the “so-what’s”, and the “what’s next?” Look for more information soon on how you can join in on one or all of these conversations, led by Rev. Karen Hutt, Christin Ament, and Emily Stacken.
