Religious/Spiritual Practice Groups

Let's go deep! We are experimenting with some small groups to explore spiritual/religious practices. Anyone is welcome to participate in as many or as few groups as they would like. Participants do not need to subscribe to any particular belief, only be interested in participating in the group with an open mind and heart. 


If you are interested in one or more groups, or have an additional idea for a group, please contact Rev. EB. 


Freely Following Jesus
Next meeting is on Sunday, November 3rd at 9:30 AM, with following meetings on first Sundays of the month

November Scripture: Luke 6:21-30, Blessings and Woes
This group is for people interested in Jesus and in Christian stories, symbols, and texts. In our time together we usually pray, read a passage of the Christian scriptures, and then talk prayerfully about what the passage brings up for us.

Heart of the Chalice
Next meeting is on Sunday, November 17th at 9:30am, with following meetings on third Sundays of the month

November topic: Chapter 5, "Presence"
This group orients toward practices that aren't about "God" but which focus on human spiritual and ethical growth. In 2019 we have been working through a specific curriculum called "Living By Heart," which is based on this video. The workbook for the curriculum is available here.

New Moon Ceremony
The next New Moon ceremony will be on Saturday, October 26th at 7 PM in the Burke Room
The New Moon Ceremony is a simple ceremony to witness intentions for the beginning of the moon-cycle. All welcome.
