What’s happening on campus?
We are all improvisers, often without realizing it. But improv isn’t necessarily about developing acting and comedy skills, but about thriving in the midst of chaotic, often unpredictable lives. (Like, say, a global pandemic.) Come for a conversation that blends scripture, pop culture, and more, as we discuss, play, and build resilience together. Our guest will be the , writer, ministry coach, and author of 2018’s God, Improv, and the Art of Living (Eerdmans).
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.
Members of the United community are invited to join The Ministry Lab’s Midweek Retreat every Wednesday at 12:00 p.m. CST. Take a half an hour each week to be present with God, your Self, and others. Develop your personal practice and discover how deepened awareness and greater emotional and spiritual balance enable you to engage more fully, creatively and energetically in the essential work of God’s Beloved Community. To learn more or to get on the weekly reminder email, contact Rev. Emily Meyer: firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Wednesday, May 26, 5:30-7:30pm CT, join Minnesota Interfaith Power & Light and other communities of spiritual practice for a special night of Soup Singing to Stop Line 3.
