Belief systems each have a way of engaging government, policy and culture. Some are more "cooperative" than others. Let's learn about one another's histories and postures toward being both a civilian and a person of faith, and if that ever calls for some kind of disobedience. Midterms will be soon, so let's embrace a dash of politics with our religious convo this eve!
Come learn the basics of dialogue facilitation in an interactive small group environment! Lunch and snacks included in the day. Email Carrie for more info or to speak with someone who has been through the training before: firstname.lastname@example.org
We're getting ready for American Thanksgiving. Let's talk about what JOY means to us in our belief systems, in our lives. What is joy, and what is it not? A feeling, a discipline, a luxury, a necessity? Can it happen at all times?
We may round out our session with an update on our summer gratitude exercise, as the group wishes.
Our last dialogue of the year is always recorded, and the topic is chosen by our dialoguers in December. A wildcard option stays on the table, in which dialoguers can ask each other questions that come to mind, unrelated to a particular overarching theme of the evening. Join us!!
TCL is committed to generosity for local and global causes we all care about, across our traditions. Advent Conspiracy invites people near and far, dialoguers and donors alike, to bring loved ones and talk about a cause that has deeply impacted their life this year.
Bring donations and snacks, and we will pool our gifts to give to 1 local and 1 global cause. We will encourage folks to get involved with volunteer opportunities related to causes we share about, regardless of who we donate monetary resources to on this day.
Come share your stories and help us be generous with resources amongst our TCL community!
Rituals can be lots of things. Maybe you engage in very particular rituals with your worshipping community. Perhaps you have your own personal rituals that connect you to God and/or meaning. Bring your stories, demonstrations. Do you have a ritual in a song? Bring the music to share with us! Whatever it is, we are eager to learn from you and what connects you to God.
Join TCL for a Christian Maundy Thursday evening house service, complete with dinner, in partnership with the New Table community! Foot washing and communion are features of this event. Interfaith friends are very welcome to join and observe, participate as desired!
