An Altar in the World

Wednesday, March 18, 7:30 pm, Online

As Barbara Brown Taylor writes so beautifully in our all-church read “An Altar in the World”, “What is saving my life now is the conviction that there is no spiritual treasure to be found apart from the bodily experiences of human life on earth. My life depends on engaging the most ordinary physical activities with the most exquisite attention I can give them. My life depends on ignoring all touted distinctions between the secular and the sacred, the physical and the spiritual, the body and the soul. What is saving my life now is becoming more fully human, trusting that there is no way to God apart from real life in the real world.”

Does that paragraph not have exquisite poignancy and advice for us as we navigate the new normal of life under pandemic?

This Wednesday evening, grab your chamomile tea or glass of wine and join Molly to talk together about “An Altar in the World”, and how it is moving us, even now, to walk through life with an eye to what God is doing. Join us whether you’ve read all of it, half of it or none of it!

We will videoconference using the Zoom platform. You can join using your smartphone, computer or landline. For those with a smartphone, computer or tablet, it’s as simple as clicking this link

For those calling in by landline, there are a few extra steps. You can read them here, or email Ben McKnight at [email protected] for help. 

The meeting will be open from 7pm on for those who want to hop on early to experiment with the technology, but we won’t begin the conversation until 7:30pm, and will wrap up between 8:30 and 9pm.
