Recurring Event Event Series: Community Grief Ritual

Community Grief Ritual

Sunday, October 2, 2022 @ 10:00 am Monday, October 3, 2022 @ 5:00 pm

We are offering a two day grief ritual in Spokane, WA This is an opportunity to gather and support each other in community to release grief, feel support and connection and heal our tender hearts. There are so few places in this culture where we can bring our strong emotions. Many of us yearn to unburden ourselves with others, but find ourselves alone with our grief all too often. This is a place where your tears and heart-ache are welcome. The retreat includes talking circles, singing, poetry, movement, practice in sacred listening, witnessing and being witnessed, ceremony, sharing food and quiet time in the woods. The heart of the retreat is a ceremony inspired by Sobonfu Some.

Creating Our Own Sacred Spaces

My church, like most, closed its doors in 2020 asking people to stay home and stay healthy. Without my weekly worship service, I worried that I might find myself drifting from the anchor that those special meetings give me. The opposite happened. My teenage son and I held our own Sunday service, complete with hymns, the sacrament and uplifting messages. It was a time never to be forgotten. We were more personally engaged in our worship. It was closer to our hearts and minds, and we felt the Lord was watching over us.

When Your Landmarks Pass

My old landmarks are fading, the people who built them disappearing. That happens to all of us as we age. I have known this intuitively. But now I am experiencing it. And it is unsettling.

Racial Reparations: Faith Communities and Political Action

slavery

In their infamous booklet "Southern Slavery as It Was," Doug Wilson of Moscow Idaho, and Steve Wilkins wrote: “There has never been a multi-racial society which has existed with such mutual intimacy and harmony in the history of the world.” The clear implication of this statement (yet to be retracted) is that Americans owe nothing to the descendants of these happy plantation workers.
