Center for Spirituality and the Arts

Our beautiful and serene Center for Spirituality and the Arts hosts many ecumenical gatherings, art shows, and concerts and is available for meetings and special events. Our regularly offered programs are described below.

Join us each Tuesday evening at 6:15 p.m. for Centering Prayer. Centering prayer is a simple form of sitting meditation. The essence of centering prayer consists of withdrawing attention from our thoughts to rest in a gentle, open attentiveness to God.

On Thursdays, we offer Centering Prayer again at noon and then Rhythms of Life at 6 p.m. Rhythms of Life offers an opportunity to practice creation spirituality. Creation spirituality is based in ancient Judeo-Christian tradition, supported by leading-edge science, bearing witness for social, environmental, and gender justice.

On Sunday evenings, we offer Deep Discussion at 6:30 p.m. The conversation focuses on progressive Christian topics.
