Virtual Worship for White Friends Confronting Racism

As we continue anti-racism work in our home contexts, it is important to stay connected and supported in community. This worship seeks to nourish white Friends’ communal anti-racism commitment and provide a space for the work we have to do together. The worship will be held weekly and is in the care of a rotating team of co-facilitators.

We would like to ask you for your input about this space. PLEASE complete this evaluation form so we can learn about your experiences and adjust the worship as needed. Thank you in advance for your feedback!

Bookgroup on Racism

Mark your calendar for January 18, 2021!  All are welcome.

Are you interested in reading books about racism and discussing them?

Our overall plan is to provide a place for people to discuss books on racism so we can learn more about the issue and ourselves and help heal ourselves and our country.

Our first meeting will be on Martin Luther King Day, January 18, 2021 in the evening at 7 pm on Zoom.   Our first book will be “My Grandmother’s Hands: Racialized Trauma and at the Pathway to Mending our Hearts and Bodies”  by Resmaa Menakem.  Please read through the first section or chapter before the meeting

The book has received excellent reviews.  It’s available at the library and you will need to get on the waiting list as soon as you can.  We have some time before our first meeting.  Sidne Lewis, our Librarian, will purchase one copy which can be shared.  Of course you could always purchase a copy.  

There are many good books available and we are open to suggestions for the next book.  We hope this will be a good time for people to meet.  If it is not, please let us know.

Please contact us for Zoom meeting details.

Way of the Spirit Online Mini-Course

Way of the Spirit Re-Envisioned

Intriguing opportunities are unfolding in challenging times, when we most need deep roots in the Holy. Since 2012, Way of the Spirit has offered residential retreats over an 18-month program cycle. With retreat centers closed into the foreseeable future, I’m thrilled to introduce a new Way of the Spirit format:

In 2020-2021, interactive online mini-courses will explore essential program themes. Each course will stand alone. You can attend any one, or continue through all the courses in a year. With a uniquely collaborative and experiential approach, we’ll build encouraging spiritual community over the miles.

Information Session to learn more about program content, meet the director, and ask questions. Online via Zoom videoconferencing:
