Hi all!  Just wanted to send out a heads up about this amazing series of performances coming to Maine!  It's so rare to see unifying spirit-motivated performance and these three shows are spectacular. Info about the performance dates & times can be found here:  "The Freedom Stories of Lala" and I highly encourage everyone to come!  Thanks!

Maybe in the fall, but with ordination coming up, then I move to my "summer home" in Saco and work 6 days a week until just after labor day, can't commit to anything at this point in time. But will keep informed on this site :-)

Welcome Marilyn, and thanks for the update on the CHIME Creation Spirituality event on April 10th D'Vorah! I'm wondering who might be interested in begining a Creation Sprituality study/practice group in May. I thought we could begin by following the Creation Spirituality Guide Book, "The We That is Me." I'm proposing that we meet once a month to begin with on either the first or second Wednesday evening of the month from 7:00 pm to 8:30 here in Lewiston at 59 Webster street. Anyone interested? Feedback?
Suggestions?

Hello! I just found my way here. I'm in Augusta. I recognize one member from Long River. I am looking forward to making connections with you. I am still learning and reading and would like to journey with you.

thanks! Can't believe it's almost here :-) Jacob is leading a workshop at ChIME on Saturday, April 10th on Creation Spirituality. Cost is $60 for the day. If anyone is interested, go to www.chimeofmaine.org for more information. Looking forward to seeing what evolves :-)

Just found my way here, and wondering if anything currently is happening - all of the posts I'm seeing are older. I'm a ChIME student, about to be ordained in June, and interested in Creation Spirituality.

In “An Invitation to Both/And Spiritual Community, ”Susan Coppage Evans reflected on her experience with beginning a creation based spiritual community in Colorado. She recalled, "Relating to what I already knew about church community, I drifted toward the known shore of hourly meetings on Sundays, but the organic unfolding of the community when left to the group process turned out to be two-hour meetings once a month, on Sunday afternoons. When I thought we should clarify a specific structure for monthly meetings – the answer came from the participants: “Yes and No. Let’s create some structure, have a lot of flexibility and most importantly, let’s get to know one another before establishing too much structure too quickly.” Imagine that, creating from relationship rather than from a self-imposed, “to do” list!
I love the idea of "creating from relationship" which is why I have not proposed an initial agenda other than meeting one another first in order to share our individual experiences, vision, etc. Has this been a mistake though, has it diminished your interest? Are you needing something more structured? Are you all simply too busy? What would you need in order to feel it would be worth your while to get together? The end of summer? A clearer agenda? Would love some feedback as time permits.

Hi folks,
I've been back from the creation spirituality event in Asheville for some time now and felt that making contact with all of you was long overdue.
Clearly folks have been extremely busy. I'm wondering if as the summer begins to gently wind down if if might be time to start at least thinking about getting together again. Perhaps some time in September?
I have also been thinking that one useful purpose this online community could serve is to let other members know when there's an event in Maine coming up that others might be interested in. For instance, Jacob, CHIME hosts a number of events that I believe members of this community would benefit from hearing about. Or if one of us is reading a book that he/she feels might be of interest to the larger group , then perhaps he/she could inform us of the book and we could consider getting together to discuss it. For instance, "The We That is Me: A Creation Spirituality Guidebook" offers activities and ideas for discussion, many of which I think are always beneficial to revisit.
Any thoughts?

Tammie

Considering that both Bonnie-kate and James are unable to attend on Sunday, I've decided to cancel and reschedule. Bonnie-kate has suggested meeting one Monday evening per month. Would that work for others?
