Teach-In with Paul Kivel

On Wokeness and Performativity

Monday, November 29, 7:30-9:00PM
on ZOOM

This second teach-in with author, organizer, and antiracist educator Paul Kivel will deepen our study of his insightful book Uprooting Racism: How White People Can Work for Racial Justice. Even if you haven't participated in the monthly or quarterly discussions, you will be challenged and edified by this session.

We are creating a learning community in North Admiral that can deepen relationships enough to ask tough questions and commit to meaningful actions for justice and mercy.


Imagining Beyond Empire

Spiritual Practices to Unlearn Oppression
6 Sessions every two weeks, Online or In Person 

In Person Section: Sundays 9:00-9:45am

Oct. 3, Oct. 17, Oct. 31, Nov. 14, Nov. 28, Dec. 12

 

Registration Required, $60 fee

(split between Admiral UCC and the Poor People’s Campaign)

 

This course invites us into the profound work of understanding the multiple overlapping forms of oppression we often inadvertently participate in perpetuating and developing spiritual practices that enable us to take an honest look at ourselves and to imagine ways of living beyond these oppressive dynamics. We are all embedded within and act out of systems that are based on the unjust exercise of power or authority. These oppressive actions and systems diminish us, divide us, and inhibit the full manifestation of God’s love and justice in this world.

 


2nd and 4th Sundays

The SOS Stories program is a confidential circle designed to hold space for both our intimacy and our disconnection from our Higher Power.

 

We believe that separation from God is an illusion, yet at various times in our lives it feels very real and overwhelms us all in different ways. We gather together for one primary purpose: to help people who want to heal, strengthen, and deepen their relationship with their Higher Power.

 

We do this by welcoming and giving comfort to those seeking support, by bravely telling our stories of encounter with a loving God, and by giving understanding and encouragement to any person struggling to trust in God’s love and welcome.
