  • Virtual Artist Talk by Benedict Scheur
    7:00 PM
    2020.10.01

    Benedict Scheuer is an interdisciplinary artist who views gardening and nature as the spiritual center of his practice. His work spans drawing, painting, sculpture, video, photography, performance, singing, and textiles. He values a non-prescriptive approach to engaging with his work, allowing color, texture, shapes, and narrative to engage with each viewer uniquely. Death, Love, Connection, Mindfulness, and Cyclicality are often warmly encountered.

    Benedict recently received his MFA in visual art from the Ohio State University and holds a B.A. in Environmental Studies from Yale University.

  • Lean Times, Living Stories
    9:00 AM-12:00 PM
    2020.10.08

    When pressures and limitations seem to outweigh our sense of strength and possibility, how do people avoid becoming disheartened? By learning how to tell a more life-giving story. Narrative Theory suggests that the ongoing discipline of crafting a more genuine story, is both rooted in the reality of the moment and expands our sense of mission. During tough times, our narratives often become rote.  Therefore, it is all the more incumbent that we reflect upon the stories we are telling ourselves as our communities navigate the difficulties of transition, loss, and diminishment. Join Diane Millis, adjunct faculty member at United and author of Re-Creating a Life (SDI Press, 2019) along with Sam Rahberg, author of Enduring Ministry(Liturgical Press, 2017) for a morning of collaborative reflection and an opportunity to discern new stories waiting to be told. This workshop will take place via Zoom.
