We are against hate which targets continually marginalized people, no matter if they are Asian, Asian-American, Pacific Islanders, Black, Indigenous, people of color, and LGBTQ+ identifying. We support movements for reform, protest, and equality. A collection of resources and organizations working toward these efforts, and those which offer support, can be found here.

We will continue to amplify marginalized voices, and welcome all, their ideas, their events, and their words. Our words here are not enough, but we wanted to say we support you and will continue to do so through our actions.

An additional list of support and relief funds can be found here.

Casper ter Kuile in Conversation With Nadia Bolz-Weber

August 11, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free
Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

Casper ter Kuile, a Harvard Divinity School fellow and cohost of the popular Harry Potter and the Sacred Text podcast, explores how we can nourish our souls by transforming common, everyday practices — yoga, reading, walking the dog — into sacred rituals that can heal our crisis of social isolation and struggle to find purpose. We are in crisis today. Our modern technological society has left too many of us — no matter our ages — feeling isolated and bereft of purpose. Previous frameworks for building community and finding meaning no longer support us. Yet ter Kuile reveals a hopeful new message: we might not be religious, but that doesn’t mean we are any less spiritual. In The Power of Ritual (HarperOne), ter Kuile invites us to deepen these ordinary practices as intentional rituals that nurture connection and well-being. With wisdom and endearing wit, ter Kuile’s call for ritual is ultimately a call to heal our loss of connection to ourselves, to others, and to our spiritual identities. Ter Kuile will be joined in conversation by Nadia Bolz-Weber, ordained Lutheran Pastor, founder of House for All Sinners and Saints in Denver, CO, and author of three bestselling memoirs, including Pastrix: The Cranky, Beautiful Faith of a Sinner and Saint.
