OPENING PLENARY: SUNDAY, JANUARY 24, 7 P.M.
GROUPS MEET: STARTING THE WEEK OF JANUARY 31.
In January of 2020 the cathedral launched The Radix Project: Small Groups/Deep Roots. More than 150 people in 18 small groups met weekly for six weeks to share their stories, reflect on Holy Scripture and sacred art, and pray for one another with intention. This offering lent itself perfectly to the transition to an online-only offering when the pandemic happened, and two further series were offered with groups meeting virtually in the Spring and the Fall of 2020. The next iteration begins in late January 2021. This season you are invited to a fourth series, centered around the scripture narratives heard each year at the Easter Vigil liturgy. New groups are formed for each series, and you are encouraged to sign up whether or not you have participated in the past.
More information is available on the Radix Project webpage, where material from previous iterations of the Radix Project are now posted, and where materials for the upcoming series will be posted as they become available.
What Is God Up To in All “This”?
SUNDAY, JANUARY 24, 2020, 7 P.M. (note evening time!), via Zoom
The Easter Vigil is the apical liturgy of the entire year, weaving a rich tapestry of scriptural stories, the ritualized confluence of grace found in Baptism and Eucharist celebrated on this most holy night, and a textured choreography of music and movement meant to inspire us for the journey. Radix 4 groups are forming now, with a focus drawing on select scriptures from the Easter Vigil that tell the story of God’s engagement with humanity and all creation. We need these stories now as ever—what is God up to in all “this?” What does scripture have to say about our experiences and the meaning we make as we turn into a new year. All are welcome, whether or not you intend to participate in the small groups. Join using this Zoom link.
Radix 4: Stories of Salvation
"Let us hear the record of God’s saving deeds in history, how he saved his people in ages past; and let us pray that our God will bring each of us to the fullness of redemption."
