One Community Home Together – a Celebration of Local Heroes

While many Brattleboro folks are doing their duty by staying home, many are working hard providing essential services in these new challenging conditions of the Covid-19 Era.  “One Community Home Together – a Celebration of Local Heroes” is an appreciation in spoken word, images and music of the hard and sometimes dangerous work of our local heroes, which will be shown on Brattleboro Community Television and Youtube.
The concert/event will feature town leaders, representatives from Groundworks, NAACP, Faith leaders and more. The music will include songs from the November, 2017 “By the People For the People” concert held at the Latchis Theater, Mary Cay Brass’s River Singers, a choral composition “Hope Lingers On” by Brattleboro composer/fiddler Lissa Schneckenburger, and other community choral performances.
It will be broadcast Saturday, May 2 at 7:00 pm on BCTV Channel 8 (you can also watch it on Youtube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAcADwTHtc4&feature=youtu.be.

Personal Discernment in a Time of Great Change

The world has changed. How do we stay connected to God’s call to us so that the changes required of us bring us closer to God? How do we prayerfully discern our role in creating a new beginning? This is an invitation to join lay and clergy leaders at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church in Brattleboro to learn and practice discernment exercises from the Ignatian tradition. They have been teaching and practicing these exercises in the parish for more than two years based largely on Mark Thibodeaux’s God’s Voice Within, woven together with their training in Centering Prayer, Soulcraft, and organizational leadership.

The online Zoom course will be a 3-part series on Monday evenings (5/11, 5/18, 5/25) from 6-7 pm with an option to remain online longer for informal reflection and sharing. Anyone may join for any session. Each session will include a brief teaching about an element of Ignatian discernment, time for a practical exercise, and opportunity for shared reflection. There will be optional “homework” after each session. At the end of the course participants will have a grasp of basic concepts of Ignatian spirituality and practical decision-making tools. RSVP helpful but not required. Click here to join the zoom webinar. To call in, dial: +1 929 205 6099; Meeting ID: 817 6738 2078. Email duncan@stmichaelsvermont.org with questions.
