Worship together can help us explore and expand the growing edges of our faith. Worship opportunities abound at the Gathering.
The All-Gathering Welcome and Worship on Sunday night will provide a joyful welcome for all of us, young and old, and also remind us that we are at the Gathering to deepen our relationship with the Spirit.
Closing Worship Saturday morning can help send us home renewed.
Throughout the week, other daily opportunities for worship are scheduled, including outdoor early morning worship under the care of Quaker Earthcare Witness and late afternoon worship under the care of Friends for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Concerns (FLGBTQC). Friends receive a detailed list of worship-related activities upon arrival at the Gathering.
The Silent Place is a room where quiet and materials help support personal reflection away from the busy energy of the Gathering.
There are many peaceful spots around the campus. Singing, dancing, and chatting with Friends of all ages can be relaxing, inspirational, and even worshipful.
May these many opportunities for worship at the Gathering enrich your life, refresh your spirit, and nurture you so that you may be transformed as you return to your daily life.
This year's Bible Half-Hour will use stories of biblical characters as they develop on the growing edges of their faith. Be ready to let their stories inform, reflect, or disclose your own growing edges. Bring your Bibles, your critical thinking, and your spirit-filled selves for fullest benefit. Our leader will be Judith Streit, a biblical scholar who teaches at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Judith is a member of Mountain View Meeting (IMYM).
The Bible Half-Hour takes place Monday-Friday 8-8:30 am.
