  • An Advent Not-So-Quiet Day at St. James’ Montclair, NJ

    December 2, 2017
    NJ

    Saturday, December 2nd, 10:15 am-2 pm.

    I’m doing the program for this meeting, and it’s about deepening our relationships through listening and group singing. We’ll learn a couple of spiritual exercises and songs to help you have a deeper Advent and Christmas Season.

    Open to absolutely any woman of any age. Come, join us! This will be deep and fun.

    All are welcome at this monthly, floating chapter meeting of the Society of the Companions of the Holy Cross (SCHC). The Companions are a great organization of about 800 women from Episcopal, Anglican, and even a few Lutheran churches.

    Thanksgiving, Intercession, Social Justice, Simplicity of Life, and of course being companionable are what we’re all about.

We gather at 6:45 pm for chocolate, fruit, and chatting and 7:00 for worship. All are welcome! Who are these Not-So-Churchy people, you may ask: Not So Churchy is an intimate worshipping community that creates our own services month by month, outside the structures of the traditional church. We are artists, community activists, and musicians. We are adults and kids — kids are an integral part of our community and we know them as full participants. We are lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, and straight allies. We bring all of ourselves, the stuff we like and the stuff we aren’t so sure of, to our space together. There is always laughter You might feel calmer leaving than you did coming in Each gathering is a little bit different, created with care There is space for change, room to grow, and an experience that’s Not So Churchy. http://www.notsochurchy.org/

  • WomanKind!

    February 23-24, 2018
    VA

    Every other year, St. James’s Episcopal Church in Richmond, Virginia hosts WomanKind, a two-day symposium on women’s spirituality with dynamic speakers, engaging workshops, and creative worship centered on a particular theme.

    This year Sara Miles, Neichelle Guidry, and Emily Scott will dive into this theme:‘Lift Up Your Hearts: The Transformative Power of Word and Table’. As we watch the frightening pronouncements made daily to marginalize and dehumanize women, people of color, immigrants, refugees and more, we want to focus the power of  God’s Word and Sacraments to gather people together, uplift them, and even transform them.

    I’ll facilitate a workshop and participate in worship. So excited!

  • Berea College, Pt. II: Carter G. Woodson Center for Interracial Education

    March 28, 2018
    KY

    Have I mentioned that Berea College has been integrated since the 1860s? Yes, you read that right; the 1860s.

    Here’s Berea’s great Commitment:

    “To assert the kinship of all people and provide interracial education with a particular emphasis on understanding and equality among blacks and whites.”

    On Wednesday, I’ll give a lunch presentation for faculty and staff at the Carter G. Woodson Center for Interracial Education. There will be singing, talking, listening, and noticing. Can’t wait.

  • Berea College Residency Pt. III

    March 29, 2018
    KY

    On Thursday, I’m excited to spend time with the Spiritual Seekers, a weekly interfaith student group that meets over lunch.

    Have I mentioned that Berea is the only one of America’s top colleges that awards every enrolled student a no-tuition promise? No student pays for tuition. They say it’s the best education money can’t buy.
