July Dinners for Pivot

 

Our friends at Pivot continue to be food challenged as a result of the pandemic.

Their main source of food, the Connecticut Food Bank, is not a reliable source of healthy and varied dietary options. If you can cook and deliver a dinner to Pivot this month, please follow this link to their meal train.

If you would like to stay and serve that dinner, or visit Pivot for a lunch, contact Mary Aly, maryaly@pivotministries.org.

Art and Faith Reflection: Continuing The Conversation

On April 18 some of us got together to reflect on the intersection of Art and FaithA link to that taped conversation is below. We talked with visual artist Stephanie Joyce and scholar and author Josef Sorett. Their respective websites and some books that inspire us are below. We also brainstormed together on our own experiences of art and faith and ways to more deeply engage with this relationship in our church. We plan to meet again on August 22 to see what has bubbled up in our imaginations.

If you would like to be a part of this dialog or have questions, please contact Marianna Kilbride, marianna@godsacre.org.
