So many people grace the doors of Westside seeking a community in which to belong, a community where they can share the big questions and challenges of their lives, and bear witness to others who are similarly seeking. We yearn for relationships of depth and vulnerability, and spaces in which to be our most honest selves.
Westside members and friends in their twenties or thirties are invited to join Rev. Christopher for a monthly time of ministry. Using a program called Heart to Heart, we’ll gather to share and to listen to one another, with the following topics explored over the next year: listening, gratitude, balance, forgiveness, God, loss and grief, money, nature, success and failure, friendship, doubt, making peace with parents, sustainable living, and endings. With each month’s topic there is work to do in sitting with some questions or trying some spiritual practices, prior to the time we gather (sure, it’s homework, but it’s meaningful homework).
Rev. Christopher said, “I’ve done a lot of these types of programs over the years, and have found them to be some of the most meaningful opportunities for connecting with folks that I’ve had, and a way to really find my place in a new community. Twenty years later, I still count some of the folks I met then as dearest friends.”
We’ll gather on the second Thursday of each month, from 5:15 to 7:00pm on Zoom (and hopefully, eventually in person at a different time).
If you’re interested in participating, please drop a note to Rev. Christopher. firstname.lastname@example.org
