A Prayer for Comfort and Healing

God, Holy One of Blessing: I come before You with many feelings. I have accomplished much and yet wanted more. My acts have given love to others. My words have given encouragement and comfort. Yet, there are actions I wish I had taken, words I wish I had spoken. Some I wish I could take back. There are accomplishments I wanted to achieve but did not. I have apologized for hurts I have caused. I have forgiven others. Sometimes my feelings are clear, sometimes they are not. I pray that whatever the stirrings of my heart, they bring me closer to my true self, to my loved ones and to You. Created by You, I seek to live ever more fully in Your image. I seek peace for myself and my loved ones. At this time may my life be filled with warmth and wholeness, comfort and healing. Amen.

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
