An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until January 11, 2024

Glowing heart on a beach
Two is better than one…for should they fall one can lift the other.
–Ecclesiastes 9-10

We are here. We’re in this challenging time together.

Ritualwell invites you for a weekly meeting time where we will lift each other up with prayer, song and creative prompts. Join us every Thursday from 12-12:30pm EST

Bring pen and paper– each week a different poet/liturgist will lead us in an expressive prompt. Pour out your feelings in words, images, doodles or whatever works best for you. We look forward to seeing you. Invite a friend or loved one who might appreciate this comforting space.
