Liturgical Living: Learning to Dance with God in Every Place
A workshop on faith at home facilitated by author and artist Gertrud Mueller Nelson
Friday evening, November 1, 2019, 6–8 p.m., Bloedel Hall;
and Saturday, November 2, 2019, 9 a.m.–2 p.m., Skinner Auditorium
Seasons and cycles in our year and in our very life-cycles have always been marked and celebrated by cultures throughout the world. The Church in its faithlife celebrates these cycles as well. In our liturgies they are elevated; in our sacraments they are blessed, underscored, and made communal. Collective observances and personal observances are enriched through traditions and rituals. How does our faithlife in church benefit from ceremony and sacrament? How could our familial and personal lives be enriched with our awareness and a conscious way to celebrate? Have you noticed those unconscious rituals that already shape our lives? Come join us as Gertrud Mueller Nelson shares her understanding of how we might “dance with God” in our simple daily cycles, in the cycles of the church year, and in the sacred celebration that is our very life, from birth to our final transition to eternity.
Co-sponsored by the Diocese of Olympia and Saint Mark’s Children & Family Ministries. Program is free with required registration Friday and Saturday. Community dinner at 6 p.m. Friday with free-will offering.
