Upcoming Events

Labyrinth Walk: Carrying An Experience in Sacred Space, Dec. 11, Tuesday 7-8:30

This walk is in conjunction with the multi-media exhibit “Through the Checkpoint”. You can experience the exhibit and walk the labyrinth, just experience the exhibit, or just walk the labyrinth. Julie Roberts-Fronk will facilitate an introduction for those who want to engage in the Labyrinth walk. The focus will be how we engage sacred space and practice, like the Labyrinth, in a way that helps us process and pray an experience, like experiencing the stories and picture of people in “Through the Checkpoint”. The Labyrinth is a sacred space to which we can bring brokenness: our brokenness and the world’s brokenness. It is a spiritual practice in which we can find the wholeness of God guiding us. The Labyrinth will remain open until 8:30. Once your walk is finished you are free to stay in the space, view the exhibit a first or second time, or conclude and return home.

Through The Checkpoint: The Pilgrim

Despite conflict and occupation pilgrims continue to flood to Jerusalem, many disengaged from the conflicts roaring outside and within church walls, as perhaps is the case with this pilgrim, who prays over the Stone of Anointing where, tradition holds, Jesus' body was anointed before his burial.

Despite conflict and occupation pilgrims continue to flood to Jerusalem, many disengaged from the conflicts roaring outside and within church walls, as perhaps is the case with this pilgrim, who prays over the Stone of Anointing where, tradition holds, Jesus’ body was anointed before his burial.

“What do we mean by, when everyday we pray the Lord’s Prayer?  We say, “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”  So, we have to bring justice to earth and do something on earth, that is what Jesus taught us.  Also I refuse, when I speak they tell me you’re are part of the peace churches.  I refuse to say, oh the Quakers are a peace church.  All churches should be peace churches because violence was contrary to the mind of Christ.”

 

Through the Checkpoint is a multi-media project created by Rev. Katie Archibald Woodward who writes,

“It is created in partnership with the Creative Visions Foundation and is serving in tandem with ongoing efforts to foster justice and peace for all living in the Palestinian-Israeli region by the continued call for equity, human dignity, and the pursuit of a coexistence without occupation.

I hope to help our global community gain a fuller picture of life in Palestine/Israel and motivate viewers, like you, to join movements to end a dehumanizing status quo and catalyze peace and equity for Palestinians, Bedouins, and Jewish Israelis alike. ”

The Christ child was born into a time and place in which there was “a dehumanizing status quo.” The season of Advent prepares us for Christmas. Advent is a time of unhiding, revealing. Advent calls us to see, look and discover. You are invited to see, look and discover something hard and hopeful about the Holy Land in Through the Checkpoint

Compassion Practice Course

compassionHow do we strengthen our hearts for the work of being the compassion of Christ in the world? The Compassion Practice is one way to increase our capacity for self-compassion and compassion for other people. This way of radical compassion is the way of Jesus. Rev. Dr. Julie Roberts-Fronk offers this course so that participants can learn practical ways to stay calm and centered, even in moments of stress. She will teach you how to develop your capacity for self-compassion and expand your ability to extend compassion to others, even in difficult moments.

The course covers the first half of the Compassion Practice as taught by the Center for Engaged compassion. The first session will be a mini-retreat, Sept. 1, 10 am to 2 pm, introducing three of the twelve practices. The three practices will be taught over a period of three weeks: Wednesdays, Sept. 5, 12 and 19, from 7-8:15 pm.

The cost of the course is $30.  Due to the nature of this course, plan to attend all sessionsRegistration closes August 26th.
