  • Radical Death Series
    6:00 PM-7:00 PM
    2020.11.01

    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, 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. The first session is Nov 1, 2020. Click here for registration and details.

  • Chapel: The Dreams the Dreamers Dream
    11:35 AM-12:00 PM
    2020.11.03

    “Democracy is not a state. It is an act, and each generation must do its part to help build what we called the Beloved Community, a nation and world society at peace with itself.” —John Lewis, July 30, 2020

    Please join us on Election Day for a multimedia liturgy that explores the dreams people have for our country and our world. What do we cherish? What is yet unfulfilled? What must be healed? What do our ancestors long for us to create? What world are we building for those who come after us? What dreams do we dream? Led by Drs. Jennifer Awes-Freeman and Justin Sabia-Tanis.

    Immediately following chapel, please join us for an Arts Lunch that will further explore these themes through the work of several artists and musicians.

  • Arts Lunch: The Dreams the Dreamers
    12:00 PM-1:00 PM
    2020.11.03

    Immediately following chapel, please join us for an arts lunch that will continue to explore how we can collectively broaden our vision of America. To do so, we’ll consider the work of some artist and musicians who have reimagined America and “American-ness,” such as Langston Hughes and Jasper Johns, among others.

  • Connection, Conscience, and Care: Continuing Together for Spiritual Support
    7:00 PM-8:30 PM
    2020.11.09

    Register Here to Receive Zoom Link

    We were united for the elections. Now we continue together in spiritual support — for ourselves and for our communities.
    For this special event on November 9, a diverse group of people will reflect on the robust intersection of justice and spiritual grounding. In their own unique ways, they will share how they meet that intersection in their spiritual lives.
    This gathering won’t include heady lectures by panelists. Our contributors will share their personal or community practices that center hearts, bodies and spirits … how they ground themselves spiritually and religiously … what supports their responses to the needs of the moment and the moments to come.
    All of us who join this event will have a chance to reflect on these practices and share in small groups what gives ourselves spiritual sustenance.
