A Growing Community
From December 2016 to December 2017, a small volunteer team hosted gatherings in five different cities, bringing together more than 100 participants, including sisters from more than 17 different religious communities and a diverse array of millennials representing over 60 groups and organizations. From these catalytic conversations a community of trust has grown—seeding ongoing local groups, a national learning network, and an imaginative action-research initiative on the future of sacred spaces.
After initial gatherings, local groups have continued to meet, deepening relationships and build a community of trust. Ongoing activities range from field trips to one another’s homes and work spaces, weekend retreats, discussions of shared readings, co-creating rituals, and—of course—continuing dialogues around themes of mutual interest. If you're interested in getting involved with existing groups in the Bay Area, Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, Philadelphia, or St. Louis—or, perhaps, starting your own, please be in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org.
