    Arts Lunch: The Art and Theology of Yes-And with Special Guest Rev. MaryAnn McKibben Dana

    12:00 PM-1:00 PM

    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).

    Contemplative Prayer Gathering

    8:00 AM

    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.

    Soup Singing to Stop Line 3

    5:30 PM-7:30 PM

    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.

    Connect from your kitchen to cook your favorite soup while learning songs for Water. This event is a fundraiser for Camp Migizi!
    The second hour of the event is intended to help prepare attendees for the Treaty People Gathering on June 5-8, including time to reflect in affinity groups on our responsibility to uphold the treaties and be humble as we come to Anishinaabe territory to rise for Mother Earth, to protect Water, Indigenous lifeways, and future generations.
    Whether or not you can make it to the June gathering up north, United community members are invited to join a United breakout room at the event to participate in these important conversations.
    Head to tinyurl.com/SoupSinging for more info on the flow of the event and to register!
    Soup Singing is an ongoing social transformation project of United student Doe Hoyer.
