    Contemplative Prayer Gathering

    8:00 AM
    2020.09.16
    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.

    Nonviolence Discussion Group

    7:00 PM-8:30 PM
    2020.09.16

    You are invited to gather with others from the United community for a discussion of nonviolence, specifically how it applies to social movements. We will meet for three sessions, starting on Wednesday, Sept 16, 23, 30, 7pm – 8:30 p.m. CST We will discuss and explore our own personal experiences and relationships to violence, conflict, and nonviolence, along with practical ways we might ground and care for ourselves and others during situations of violence that might arise in the context of social movements. Facilitators are Eileen Hanson, currently pursuing MDiv in Interreligious Chaplaincy, and Justin Sabia-Tanis, Assistant Professor of Christian Ethics and Social Transformation. Please join us for as much of this 3-part conversation as you are able.
