Winter Solstice: Hope is the Thing with Feathers

Wednesday, December 21, 2016
7:00 – 8:30 pm

“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –

These lines by Emily Dickinson inspire us as winter surrounds us. Come illumine the darkness by lighting candles, singing songs, celebrating, mourning, embracing. Deep in the dark and cold, we’ll wander inward, find a spark, and kindle hope for the season.

Praying the Advent Names of God

Tuesdays, December 6 and 13, 2016
6:30 – 8:30 pm

Join artist Ansgar Holmberg and prayer poet Joan Mitchell to reflect and meditate on the Advent names of God. A blend of words and images will invite us to transform the traditional O Antiphons from the Advent Liturgy of the Hours into the context of evolutionary cosmology, opening new space for us to anticipate Jesus’ birth in our busy lives and our planet in peril.
