GATHER ‘ROUND THE KITCHEN TABLE
Thursday afternoons 1.30pm - 2.45pm via Zoom
These cold winter afternoons give us a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a relaxing time ofconversation with friends.
This session we will focus on a another one of Rev. Dr. BarbaraBrown Taylor’s well-known books. Holy Envy is filled with warmth and humour as Taylorrecounts her experiences of discovering the sacred in unexpected places while teaching the aWorld Religions course to undergraduates in rural Georgia. Her deep and reflective thoughtsreveal how God delights in confounding her expectations! We will also include material from other sources to add richness to our conversation.
So bring your coffee and gather around the (virtual) kitchen table or perhaps just settle
Please feel free to invite a friend to join us
I'm looking forward to seeing you all each week.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT SHARING CIRCLE
Continuing with 'Finding God in the Mess'
Sharing in circle has a long history of transformation and community strength in both indigenous and addictions recovery traditions.
Sharing in circle allows us both opportunity to listen, and when our turn arrives, to speak.
A topic is raised each Wednesday in the realms of Faith, Justice, Spirituality, and Action in the Christian tradition that we are invited to reflect on and share if we wish.
Rev. Jonathan usually facilitates the circle. Please contact him for the zoom access: firstname.lastname@example.org
We have used books, video, or individual presentations as our 'prompts' for the evening.
"Doors" open at 7:45pm, process begins at 8pm-9pm. The zoom stays on until 9:30pm latest for those who want to chat more.
Looking Forward at St A's & in Our Community
