    Contemplative Prayer Gathering

    8:00 AM
    2020.07.08
    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.

    Think Like a Lawyer, Act Like a Chaplain

    6:00 PM-7:00 PM
    2020.07.08

    This series shows how religious freedom law and policies have been weaponized and how chaplains can be agents of resistance.

    Think Like a Lawyer, Act Like a Chaplain was first presented as a four-hour workshop in 2019 at the Association of Professional Chaplains (APC) annual conference. The purpose of this online, four-part series is to offer spiritual care professionals and students an opportunity to look at how weaponizing religious freedom may negatively impact our abilities to offer spiritual care in health care settings, as well as ways to resist discrimination through hate-proofing.

    Part I (July 1) – A New Legal and “Inconvenient Situation”

    Part II (July 8) – The U.S. Constitution

    Part III (July 15) – U.S. Supreme Court Decisions
