Connect with Your Community Throughout the Week!
During this time of physical distancing, we are experimenting with different ways to connect socially beyond Sunday service and coffee hour. Here are some opportunities we hope you will join:
Occasionally Via Facebook Live
Facilitated by Rev. Mike, Souulful Men will explore a mature, liberal religious masculinity: male-positive, pro-feminist, gay-affirming, culturally and racially inclusive, open to all who identify primarily as male. Our primary objective will be to support personal and spiritual growth. Discussions will include relationships, spiritual growth, toxic vs. healthy masculinity, and current challenges such as health, employment, and family matters, but any subject of concern is appropriate.
We'll be reading and discussing "The Circle Within" by Dianne Sylvan (available on kindle and as a paperback) in a series of 10, 90-minute online workshops offered once a week from early August through mid October. Workshops will also include wisdom from the work of Caitlin Matthews, Christopher Penczak, and others (including the participants!) Indicate your interest by participating in this survey to determine our regular meeting time.
In five weekly meetings, we will dive into five short, sacred texts from various sources; scripture, Rumi, Toni Morrison, Mary Oliver, and Lao Tzu. The goal will be to create brave, sacred space with a small group of kindred/seeker souls, learning and growing from our mutual responses, thoughts, and stories.
Facilitated by Rev. Mike, participants will receive the weekly selection ahead of time, and our time together will be gently and loosely guided by focus questions. We will meet on five Monday nights in August, 7:00 to 8:15 p.m. To register, send an email to Rev. Mike at Revmorran@gmail.com.
