Adult RE: Spirit in Practice
Shortly after the COVID-19 lockdown began, Eliot’s Adult Education: Spirit in Practice Team developed a continuing series of Zoom offerings to provide opportunities to engage with others in our church community with a focus on spiritual practices. 

Eliot Connects: Rohr
Second & fourth Wednesdays 
4:00 to 5:15 pm
Our group  has met twice a month since May to discuss our various spiritual truths in response to reading The Universal Christ by Father Richard Rohr, a Franciscan Priest.  The group strives to create a safe space for each of us to grow. We share, raise questions, and support each other. We have decided to go forward with each member taking a turn in providing a reading or other piece of media as a jumping off point for discussion that week.  The emphasis is on how to make the spiritual applicable in our everyday lives. "Humor is seeing the irony in life," (Deepak Chopra).  We do laugh! If you’d like to join us please contact one of us: Karen Beargie, Karen Gender, Dan Dreyfus, Peter Wilson.  

Eliot Connects: Meditation Practice with Jeanne Kloeckner
1st Wednesdays
7 to 8:30 pm
This drop-in session will promote creating and holding space for the quiet stillness within as a form of self-care during our ‘safer-at-home’ time. We will share a centering topic each week that will provide a foundational base for our meditation practice and our discussion. Sign up to receive the group login information.
Eliot Connects: You’ve Got A Friend with Mary Meihaus  
This drop-in session will promote the premise of Carole King’s song, “You’ve Got A Friend.” Mary has chosen a centering topic each week that will purpose our discussion and help us get through these troubled times. Together, we will come out of the other end of this better for the journey. Drop in and join Eliot friends for an uplifting discussion. Sign up to receive the group login information.
