Small Groups

We open to the movement of the Holy Spirit as we are invited to love with our whole BODY and HEART (Compassionate Conversations), MIND (Emergent Strategy by Adrienne Marie Brown), and SPIRIT (Invitations of Jesus by Trevor Hudson).

Compassionate Conversations: Pause and Prayer

Join us virtually via Zoom on Tuesday evenings at 6:30 – 7:45. We open with a short centering silence and prayer; share a brief reading; and an invitation to consider how it is with our soul or what is on your heart that wants to be shared. We hold space for each person to share their truth and explore. 

This is dialogue rather than discussion. We end in a closing meditation and prayer.  Our time together has become a safe space for sharing; learning and engaging in dialogue – deep listening for understanding; and practicing being present to God, to ourselves, and to others. We are finding comfort, connection, acceptance, belonging, honesty, and gratitude in our conversations.

All are welcome to join anytime. If you want to join in the Zoom conversation or have questions, please contact Terri Storer at tstorer@neb.rr.com 

"Emergent Strategy" Small Group

We will slowly engage in the content of this book through next April as Adrienne Maree Brown invites us to consider what we know, and don’t know, to align our visions of social justice as we co-create the future working together. She gives us many tools for emergent strategy facilitation. (09/15/2021 – 04/27/2022)
