Sharing Circles are a vital part of congregational life, bringing participants together in small groups monthly to engage with topics for reflection on life and spirituality in a relaxed setting. Participants join a facilitated group of 8-10 people and make a commitment to attend monthly.
Small groups are great places to get to know other people and to get to know yourself better too. Over time, participants build deep connections with one another, with the congregation, and with the sacred.Whether the topic is “good and evil,” “mindful living” or “letting go,” the conversation is respectful and caring and leads to greater understanding. In each session, facilitated by a member of the congregation, all participants have opportunity to share their perspectives, tell their stories, and listen deeply. The time together is structured: Groups begin and end with centering readings and often
include a time of silence before the sharing begins.
