Monday Morning Men’s Group
A small group of men gather at 7:00 AM on Monday mornings for coffee and conversation. The group meets at Panera. All men are warmly invited to participate.
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
Given the anxious and confusing times we find ourselves in, how can we, as people of faith, engage on the level of our hearts? How can we foster a community that is respectful—even curious of—our distinct practices of faith? How can we listen deeply and resist the urge to live out of fear?
When it comes to interfaith dialogue, we need a place to start, a space to sit in for a while. The rich poetry, art, and stories of our faith traditions all speak to our experiences of God in our lives. We seek ways to express ourselves and share the glimpses we have of grace. By fostering our religious imaginations, our hearts expand, and we can grow closer to one another.
Come share a time of conversation and enjoy a cup of tea as we read and experience the poetry, art, and stories of the world’s great faith traditions. Bring something to share with the group that has been transformative for you! Maybe it is a painting, or a poem, or a story from our sacred texts. Fr. Stuart and Khalid will help guide the conversation each week by bringing examples of art and poetry.
Join us in the Grace Church parish hall on
Thursdays in April (2, 9, 16, 23, 30) from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM. Facilitators will be Khalid Ibrahim and Fr. Stuart Higginbotham, and others may join!
