Creation Unfolding: The Prayer for Not Praying

Fear not.
For one day, prayer will leap joyously again from your lips.

The words, of course.
And too, the sway.
And the mystery
And the silence speckled with hope dust rising through the air.

In the meantime, know that
the beginning
and even redemption
were only made possible by the time in between.
Time like the days you spend now.

For without the interim creation days, olam hazeh and olam haba would have never come to be. 

Yes. The unfinished is holy.
And the absent. And the moving.

These are the primary experiences of being human.
And the primary building blocks of heaven and earth.

Learning to Say "We": Writing Identity

In this immersion, we will reflect and expand on our personal experiences of identity, using writing exercises and in-depth discussions to think about, challenge, discover, explore, and experiment with different ways to identify ourselves, to consider how those ways connect us to and separate us from others, and how they represent and misrepresent aspects of who we are.

Four sessions, starting June 15th
