An Evening with John Pavlovitz: Building a Bigger Table

America has been forever altered. This election has taken a toll on all of us; on our families, our friendships, our local communities, and our faith communities. How can we respond to these days in a way that is redemptive? How can we create or renovate community in a way that transcends the differences that have been exposed and the wounds we’ve received? What does the bigger table look like in these uncertain times in America?

Join author, pastor and activist John Pavlovitz, and like-minded friends, for an evening of hopeful and uplifting storytelling, encouragement, humor, and honest conversation about what we’ve all been through over the last few years and the possible way forward.

Tickets $25 at Eventbrite seating limited to 140

Workshop: Cultivating Hope in Difficult Times

To be compassionate is to bleed; to feel deeply for the damage around you and to be moved to respond to it. This is a beautiful and invaluable instinct, but it is also costly. In days when so much need is at our doorsteps and on our news feeds, how do we attend to it all without becoming overwhelmed and consumed? How can we cultivate hope when it is hard to come by? 

Join author, pastor and activist John Pavlovitz for this workshop of authentic conversation that will provide you with techniques to help you stay focused and positive that will replinish your well of hope during this challenging time.

Tickets $45 at Eventbrite, seating limited to 100

Candlelight Vigil - To honor those killed in mass shootings

On Sunday, June 3rd, a group of Young Progressives are having a candlelight vigil to honor all those who have been killed in mass shootings. We will meet at Benham Park at 6pm and walk to the courthouse. We will be providing electric candles (if you have any at home please bring them). We would encourage you to make signs. After we reach the courthouse we will have a few individuals give speeches. The event will end at sunset.
