FOR THE LONG HAUL: SPIRITUAL PRACTICES FOR SACRED RESISTANCE
Have you felt overwhelmed at any point this past year? In a moment when injustice and bigotry have taken center stage, it can feel impossible to work for change without quickly burning out. Thankfully, we are rooted in a tradition filled with people who led their entire lives in active resistance to hatred and oppression. We’ll take a moment to explore the spiritual roots of sacred resistance, through simple practices that makes justice into joyful work that can last a lifetime.
We’ll explore what these simple practices look like for us, both as a community and individually. We’ll have moments for lament and for celebration; we’ll explore simple, portable prayer practices that can root us in God’s love in our daily living, and we’ll enter in silence and sabbath as a way to rest and recharge our spirits. (Oh yes, with a lot of food, fellowship, and free time along the way!)
