How does it feel to pray while in the streets in protest? What does it feel like to listen to Spirit when there is chaos and violence around you? How can collective discernment still support our faith in action when we must make quick decisions?
Explore these questions and more in four experiential salons. Each session will give participants the opportunity to ground in Spirit while exploring through stories, roleplay, and questions and answers. Join for one session or all four to explore the following themes:
- Feeling Fear and Making Decisions
- Affinity Groups for Action Risk
- Calling on Spirit in Chaos
