“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for people to dwell together in unity!”
It is indeed pleasant and good that people would dwell together. And it is for this purpose, for the purpose of communing, that we came together in Kingston for a short weekend in February.
We wanted a time to gather in sacred community together. We envisioned a time to ask the questions and imagine possibilities with other visionaries and dreamers, where prayer, meditation, signing, laughter, silence, ritual, play, discussion, freeze tag, juggling, and massage could blend together in the embrace of a weekend.
This is where we find a common spirit. We called it Communion because that is exactly what we were doing. Gathering to share intimate thoughts and feelings. Living our interdependence. Praising and giving thanks for grace – the gifts that we have received that extend beyond anything we deserve. Sharing food and drink together.
