Sitting with the Spirit

Sitting with the Spirit

An online gathering using Zoom. Fridays at 12 noon Eastern time.

We gather mindful of the systemic racism and violence perpetuated against Black people, Indigenous Peoples and People of Colour largely with impunity for the perpetrators, and we affirm that God calls followers of Christ to stand with the revolutionary spirit of the Risen One against all injustice and oppression.

Responding to physical distancing and our shared concerns, we gather together in spacious solidarity to pray and reflect. Come and share your thoughts, fears, prayers, and silence.

All are welcome — as you are and as you feel! ‘Sitting with the Spirit’ is an LGBTQ2S inclusive space, informed by the Christian tradition, and open to people of all spiritual, religious and secular traditions. It should take no more than 30-45 minutes.

Following best practices, we will use a ‘Waiting Room’ to help control access to the call to reduce the risk of disruption.
