“Tending the Beloved: An AltarMaking Space” with Charis Boke, PhD
February 7, 2021, 10 am
In this spiritual makerspace we gather songs, stories, and objects of a beloved. This can be a person, a place, an activity, a spirit or deity. Dr Charis Boke guides us through what it means to build an altar, how to choose what goes on one, and the beginnings of the materials for our own altars. Please set up a paper and pen, and have a small area on a table or bookshelf cleared for your altar. If you have access to a small bowl and a small candle (votive or tea lights fine, as are electric candles), please have those readily available. You may also choose to have some plants or other natural objects available for the altarmaking.
“The Curiosity of Cupid: A Valentine’s Day Celebration” with Rev. Dr. Mellen Kennedy
February 14, 10 am
In the words of St. Augustine, “To fall in love with God is the greatest romance.” Huh? Let’s explore the reality and power of these words as we celebrate Valentine’s Day.
“Race Amity: A Friendly Way Forward!” with Rev. Dr. Mellen Kennedy and Ahmad Abdel-Mawgood
February 21, 10 am
An encounter with Ahmad Abdel-Mawgood 8 years ago set me on trajectory of working on Countering Islamophobia, which I’ve been doing ever since. Ahmad will join me in this service as we explore Race Amity. This approach is the brain-child of William “Smitty” Smith, the inspiring founder of the National Center for Race Amity. Smitty sees a way out of our current morass by focusing on the stories of cross-racial collaboration which have existed since the founding of this country. Join Ahmad and me in this service as we share stories about our friendship, and explore and celebrate Race Amity.
You’re invited to stay for a short coffee half-hour and then
a discussion of Race Amity from 11:30 to 12:30.
