So it is actually happening! A new church, I mean. In December I linked up with Amy Diane Shoemaker, and determined that partnership in this endeavor was a great idea. We held small group conversations in February, and then launched on Sunday, March 2, at InterPlayce in Oakland. Twenty of us had a great time moving, telling stories, singing, doing art, and in general having a wonderful non-churchy improvisational embodied worship service.
Our next gathering will be Sunday, April 6, 5:30pm, at InterPlayce, at the corner of 23rd and Telegraph.
In the meantime, we are putting on a mid-Lenten season renewal retreat for clergy! So if you are a clergy-person and want to:
Harness renewed energy to carry you through Easter
Gather with fellow clergy to reconnect with sustaining breath
Recharge your body, mind, heart and spirit
Move, tell your story and explore the grace of God
